Dear Capitalists

Your employer can tell you what you can put in your body.
Your employer can tell you how to cut your hair.
Your employer can tell you not to engage in certain activities like sports.
Your employer can tell you to smoke or not smoke, drink or not drink.
Your employer can tell you what clothes you are allowed to wear.
Your employer can tell you to be straight.
Your employer can decide your gender expression.

Without either a government to tell your employer that you have certain rights, or democratic control of the workplace, your employer is in charge of every aspect of your life.

If your employer decides to pay you a starvation wage, and there is a labor surplus (there always is), then you have no choice but to submit to the will of your employer to continue living.

Your only other option is to starve, freeze, and die.

That's your idea of freedom?
