My thoughts about the different kinds of freedom.

The Meaning of Freedom

Man is a slave to his weakness.  He does not recognize when an evil is consuming him and, instead of getting rid of it, he nourishes it and allows himself to be destroyed. 

Men are driven to nowhere in the name of a slogan such as change, freedom, work, liberty, independence, and all kind of words that sound good and please their heart.  Do they even understand the kind of words which come from a mouth with great intonation, eloquence, allure, grand gestures, for which they are ready to give up their voice and maybe their lives? 

What is the real meaning of those words "freedom", change, etc.? What freedom do we see in the chains of your pride and hostility-- the freedom to be hungry and feel miserable?  Why talk about freedom from our chains?  Men are prisoners of their anatomy and deficiencies, of their traditions, of their education they have received and of the society in which they live.

It is senseless to die for freedom; actually, we must live for it.  Let us rejoice in freedom, but more so in a freedom of the spirit.  This is a positive strength that helps us in our professional, social and personal environments.  And it is thanks to this strength that we achieve freedom--and attract love.

Men are prisoners to their anatomy and deficiencies... but... these can be overcome. The soul triumphs over death in the end and gives us our true freedom. :~)

The senselessness of dying for freedom instead of living for it.
Very well said my friend, but the ones in power always will proclaim to us the necessity to go and "defend" our freedom not unlike the greedy shepherd urging the lambs to the slaughter.
