Originally, freedom was having enough land and natural abundance to provide for ones self without the interference of other men. Therefore
originally, only men were free, since women and children were completely dependent upon men for their sustenance, and as we all should know,
Then, as populations grew and natural abundance diminished, men became slaves to other men in exchange for sustenance, as the responsibility=freedom
to sustain ones self from an abundance in nature was gradually extinguished.
As the corruption of nature continued, men not only found themselves increasingly dependent=enslaved to other men, but to women as well through
further subjugation via propaganda and psychological mind-control; increasingly functioning merely as beasts of burden, subserviant to the system and
women as well.
And now, men sit around asking "what is freedom", being so far removed from nature's abundance and the natural order that the concept is merely a
meaningless question to ponder, having no relevance at all in modern daily life - with the possible exception of "consumer freedom" and "sexual
freedom" - which are really Orwellian double-speak terms for "utter and complete enslavement and perversion of nature, man, and the natural order".
At the most fundamental level, anything that increases population density decreases freedom, and anything that decreases population density increases
freedom. Freedom and human population density are directly and inversely proportional.
Freedom is what all other life-forms have and desire. Unfortunately, man is dumb enough to think he can improve on nature and the natural order by
destroying nature and the natural order ... man thinks he can gain freedom by destroying freedom; and in this illusion, mankind destroys itself.
Every human civilization for the last 100,000 years have been a 100% failure. And we never care to learn from it.
Tattoo a dot on the bottom of a woman's big toe each time she bears a child, and tie the tubes on the 3rd, and I guarantee eternal freedom, abundance,
and prosperity for mankind. That is the only answer.
