"freedom's only privileged extended, unless enjoyed by one and all"
i do not believe any human alive knows the will of any god.
freedom is what each person robs from every other person when they choose to be inconsiderate of them and of all other things.
governments are not freedom. ideologies are not freedom.
and the ideological excuses made for aggressiveness, are tyranny by any other name.
democracy is not freedom. that is correct. but it is an opportunity, to hold hierarchies accountable.
this is almost a separate issue. as separate as anything ever is. which might not ever be entirely.
freedom is a good thing, but not one well or often understood.
once every possible result has been taken into consideration,
no further license need be required, to behave in any way which violates none.
that is freedom. any freedom which does not violate, rob, impinge upon, however you want to say it, the freedom of any self aware living thing else.
and self aware living thing includes nearly, if not all, mammals, reptiles, birds and fish.
it is only because of the unwillingness and/or inability of some individuals,
to take into consideration, the lives, well being, and freedom of others,
that regulation along with some means of enforcing it, becomes required.
thus consideration is the friend of freedom,
while the lack of it, is the friend of tyranny.
