Is Freedom a Lollipop Handed over by High Authority or rich people to play with in limited means that serve their purpose?

Kings, Monarchs, Autocratic Leaders, Company Owners, Rich people, Political Leaders, and Influencers are the one who use freedom as a tool to keep people in their control and in reversal we the people get happy by the limited freedom that we got such as to choose our clothes, food, and fancy items, some time to speak openly in social media; but when we go deep like Julian assange, Snowden, martin luther, etc fight for our rights we are pushed down or removed from the system. I want to know is freedom used as a lollipop or not?

Our fore father started this tradition of choosing one representative who will act as per the peoples interest, But this action has came as a spat right on us and the group of representative tells us what to do and what not to do, while they themself enjoy great percentage of freedom,facility etc and restrict the freedom of those who has chosen them.

        The real enemy is ignorance on this subject

          Sep 28 2013: Yes Pat I agree with you, People try to ignore problem and get back to their daily Work which for them is more important. People are also right they can't on daily basis do protest or raise their voice as they put this responsibility on the chosen one who actually take the supporters on ride and hence they suffer.
