Who is exploiting whom?

The more clearly you state to me that such and such people are inhibiting your freedom, hampering your growth, stealing your joy, the more obliged you become to answer the question, “Why are you with them?”

I will tell you why you are with them: because you are so corrupted that you want all the benefits that come from their company and parallelly also want to insult and humiliate them.
