Freedom- the Definition

"Freedom" means doing what you want to do.

Freedom is morally neutral; it can be good or it can be bad- depending upon your desires. You have an obligation to not use your freedom to act upon your desires to harm the innocent, and also to accept the responsibility for your actions. You are accountable for everything you do.

Other people, consequences, responsibility, "laws", beliefs, reality, and many other things can limit your freedom. Freedom, liberty, and rights are not the same thing but are entangled.

Some people can be perfectly "free" in prison, while others couldn't be free in Utopia.

Once again, this is what I mean when I use the word "freedom" and it may vary somewhat from your meaning.
