I can’t be so succinct… mainly because - to me - there are more impediments to freedom than the Government. But even within the context of “the government”, I have trouble dissociating “freedom” from “responsibility” since I am a supporter of what has been called the social contract.
So I have fewer declarative sentences than I do rhetorical questions on the matter. That does not mean that I view freedom only philosophically and do not recognize real threats to my freedom.
I have very few of what might be called a “line in the sand”. But presented with an obstacle to my freedom that crosses such a line, my mind instantly goes into a mode of developing a means of circumvention, escape, or a solution to counter the obstacle. And if I can arrive at such a solution and implement it, am I not free? Or must my freedom require no effort from me?
