Can I ask what sort of sources of programming you have had to break free from?
It is literally everywhere. Religion is one factor, but the media in general is worse. Advertising, television, MTV culture, McCulture....
Society tells us what to wear, what not to wear, what parts of the body are 'obscene', how we should look, act, think, what we should believe.
I have never been 'programmed' as per a religious sense, but by being raised in a society I have been heavily subject to it's influence. This molds the mind into patterns, patterns mimicked by everyone else.
I endeavor to closely examine these patterns and work to discard the ones that I cannot justify.
