Freedom, as I see it, is not only a clear state of independance, but also a state of mind. Its boundaries can only be determined and examined by those who live its benefits.

The concept of freedom is completely ambivalent. While I live in America, Home of the Free and Land of the Brave, I do enjoy a wide number of freedoms that citizens across the world do not. I can speak about what I wish to whomever I wish. I can come and go at will pretty much wherever I wish. I...
