Gandhi sought the spinning wheel as a means of economic liberation for the masses of simple, humble, Indians. The point was that it was bread labor. It was also a source of prayerful work. It was honest, prayerful, bodily labor. It was a source of liberation because it didn't require the exclusivity of education, money, talent, or status to liberate.
What could be an equivalent tool of liberation today? What is it we are enslaved by?
