What is freedom?

Everyone wants freedom, but we mean very different things when we use that word.

Is it freedom to be able to drink alcohol or is it freedom to not have the burden of being able to choose alcohol?

Does a government allow for the possibility of freedom at all or would we all have the freedoms of today taken away if there weren't any government?

well, infinite examples can be made.

What is freedom to you?
