Freedom means something different to everyone else, and sometimes different views clash. It's not pretty, not ever. Life is one of the worst hells someone will ever go through sometimes. But it can also be wonderful and heavenly at other times. That's how it is, I suppose. The bad seed ruins it for the others; but not all Nazi's wanted to kill the Jewish people, not all Russians were communists, and not all southerner's were racists...

And limiting freedom to one definition, one singular belief, is in small a way, fascism. The point is, is the word freedom should be left out of question, it shouldn't be used as a morality boost like it is used for a lot. Freedom is just a word that should not be bound by a certain belief or definition. Free, I believe, could be another description of that.
