Freedom

Freedom is the power to act, think, or speak in whatever way one desires or deems necessary, without oppressive constraint. Freedom can mean different things for different people, and as such, it’s an extremely charged and powerful concept: many groups have warred over it, and the struggle continues today in many modern social, political, and civil arenas. Lesser seen but no less important are the battles for freedom that go on within our own heads—how we choose to experience our lives internally and how we express ourselves externally before the rest of the world. Whether personal or affecting entire communities, the concept of freedom is sacred to all humanity. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
