Freedom: everyone knows what that is, right? Or do we? Does freedom mean simply that I have the right to do what I want to do when I want to do it? Or does freedom mean that everyone should have equal opportunity to participate in the rights that we have chosen to be the norm at a particular time and place? Does freedom come with responsibilities, or does a demand for responsibility hinder my freedom? Do we believe in freedom for us and our kin or for all? Is freedom as bright and awe inspiring as a sunburst of fireworks or just a fading illusion, leaving nothing but smoke and embers?
