Freedom is the ability to live life the way you want to live it, as long as it is nothing illegal or extremely immmoral. You are going to be able to not be shunned based on having different values. Freedom is the right to live without fear, to not have to look over your shoulder to be shot down and to be able to live life at its fullest. Basically a life that is full. Any kind of life without freedom is not a full life. It is some twisted existence that is not really worth living. So to have freedom is to live life. And to live life is the meaning of life. We do not need to fear and for us not to fear, we must really have a lot of freedom. That in a nutshell is what freedom means to mean.
