Freedom is the ability to responsibly handle the idea of being able to do anything one imagines. Freedom is being able to choose to sit home doing nothing, but choosing to get up and take advantage of being able to receive an education and work any job one wants. Freedom is being allowed to complain about the government, write letters to the government, and participate in political rallies and not be beaten or arrested. Freedom is what a person makes it to be. Freedom is only freedom if a person takes full advantage of his/her right vote, to buy the groceries one wants, to read, to write, to see, to hear, to speak, to go. People stop being free when they stop doing these things.
