Freedom Defined

by Christian Thomas Golden

This is the first in what will be a series of posts on freedom. It seems most appropriate to begin with a discussion regarding the definition of freedom.

Please include your definition of freedom along with a list of word associations (words that come to mind when you think of freedom). I’ll start.

Freedom: one’s ability to think and act according to his or her own will.

Freedom: responsibility, accountability, anxiety, maturity, wisdom, folly, rebellion, anarchy, power, and courage.
