But in the end I agree with Susan, a utopian type of freedom would be nice, but there's too many bad people out there, so realistically it's impossible. At least I believe that's what you were getting at in your comment.
I'm with you on this one. I think we've grown so used to having a structured society that without it would be chaotic. I don't think everyone needs a structured society, but there are those that do. And without it, to them, would be a chaotic mess.
Freedom itself is something you feel. It may be temporary, but it is there. And I don't think anyone is truly free. The list can go on an on to what prevents a person from being totally free. I'm not free, even though many times I have felt free. And I think society itself will never feel free.
And I also don't think freedom can be brought on by smoking marijuana, drinking, doing heroin, or dropping acid - because even then, if you're doing a drug for freedom or happiness, you're still a slave to something...
