Where did it go wrong?

I listened to Chomsky today. He was talking about the wage slavery. It's amazing how much of our world view is actually mere conditioning, not the objective truth. Now everyone is convinced that working for wages is something normal and obvious, but it wasn't so obvious one, two, three hundred years ago.
I'm fully convinced that we (humanity) had a good chance of creating something sensible. Enlightment gave us such wanderful ideas of personal freedom and its meaning. Then in the beginning of XX century something got seriously fucked up, and we never recovered, never got back on the right track.
