  1. Freedom is indeed a two-edged knife. And it’s such an elusive and tangled concept — it’s all relative. While EVERYONE deserves freedom at a fundamental level, not everyone can have it, especially if their destructive actions prove to be dangerous to other people’s freedom (to live, to learn, to love, to have things). So, to prevent and punish, society takes away the freedom of those who seek to take away others’ freedom. There is irony and sadness inherent in all this.

I'm all ears. Tell me.
