Freedom

Freedom, n. Exemption from the stress of authority in a beggarly half dozen of restraint's infinite multitude of methods. A political condition that every nation supposes itself to enjoy in virtual monopoly. Liberty. The distinction between freedom and liberty is not accurately known; naturalists have never been able to find a living specimen of either.

can liberty be a sub definition of freedom: or the ability to enjoy living in freedom?

Pia, that's actually a good question to pose to a deeper guy. Can freedom be the opportunity to make constructive choices and liberty the opportunity to make every choice?

Karma, chains flatter you.
