    I've seen this done on other forums and even on facebook media by the BBC, can you illustrate what you believe is meant by freedom using a picture, a passage or citation or a quote?



    I think if this works then it'd be possible to create threads with other topics too, such as equality, liberty, fraternity, socialism, liberalism, conservatism, fascism, communism, ecologism etc.

    And the citation is psalm 22

    http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=...ADgK#v=onepage&q=psalm 22 erich fromm&f=false

    I'm linking this for the appendix: Psalm 22 and The Passion, it is a good, short explanation of why its significant at all.

    The images are the all seeing eye of God, some books because I think freedom to print and read what you want is pretty important and some battered black pudding, because freedom to eat crazy crap is freedom too.

    One thing I wonder too, is it possible to conceive of "unfreedom" or the opposite of freedom more easily than freedom itself? Why should that be the case? Also what do you consider more important than freedom? Do you think that certain freedoms should and are forfeit purely by virtue of social attitudes and do you think that's a good or a bad thing?

    I think sometimes it's easier to identify our constraints than it is to feel truly free.

    I'm not sure what I think is greater than freedom- for me, I think freedom means different things to different people. It reminds me of that scene from the Matrix where the guy just wants to be able to taste the steak again and be happy- to him, being happy is worth more than his freedom.

    Who's to say that freedom is the ultimate thing to strive for? In some respects I think if I was truly happy, and yet not free...I would be content with that!

    Freedom is a strong spirit. But freedom needs guidance. Some times freedom doesn't want the guidance and becomes the poison dragon. Beautiful but also tragic and destructive.
