Freedom Pt. 3



I wonder if this is the final part of a series designed to more precisely define the meaning of the word freedom concerning our people and to retire the meaningless, ambiguous use of the word.

It occurred to me that "freedom" is an abstract word and useless if not attached to a particular state, condition or object. Freedom makes sense if we are talking about freedom from a specific thing, i.e. the freedom from slavery, freedom from oppression, freedom from interference etc. But to say we want freedom - without a corresponding object, means nothing. Of course no mature adult can expect to be free of everything - that would include freedom from responsibility. We can wish for it, but we can't expect it.
To make this new viewpoint complete, we can say that we don't always require freedom from something we can include freedom to do something, i.e., freedom to run, freedom to think, freedom to love, etc. Maybe this will help clarify our outlook. Yes?
"Whoever is winning at the moment will always seem to be invincible."
