Reverence for Chains

Here's a philosophical question. If the fools revere the chains, and cannot be disabused of their reverence for them, are they really chains? Don't all of us have chains we revere? Marital bonds? Filial devotion? Ties to families, churches, schools, sports teams, fraternal organizations, communities, etc.? 

What do you propose to do if you view my ties as chains? Of course, you're welcome to employ reason and eloquence to enlighten me. I may reject your arguments. I may choose not to listen to you at all. What then? Will you sic armed agents on me? Will they break my thumbs? Force me to be free?
