What is freedom?
As we discuss various topics within the TED community, I am struck by the differences in where folks sit with regard to their appetite for freedom (versus risk etc) and indeed people really are very different - which of course is good.
However, as I have debated this informally with friends, I think we have found it easier to say what freedom is not, rather than what freedom is (ie: it's easier to describe freedom by talking about the absence of bad conditions).
So, what is freedom?
