Oh to be free what humans we would be!

I am from Canada the true north strong and free.. But in reality, am I really free? Are any of us really free? We do not live behind bars but that doesn’t mean we are free to do what we like & isn’t that the true meaning of freedom? I could make so many points about how I believe that I am not truly free but I will only make the following few simple points.

I do not have the freedom to go outside & walk down the street naked. If i choose to use my freewill to do just that I will be thrown in jail.

I do not have the freedom to turn on my tap & drink fresh water free from chlorine and  fluoride. If i choose to drink for the tap then I am forced to drink water with medication in it that has not been prescribed to me by a doctor.

I do not have the freedom to grow certain types of plants in my garden. If I did I would go to jail.

I do not have the freedom to hunt & trap my own food if I chose to… except during hunting season.

I do not have the freedom to walk my dog without a leash.

I do not have the freedom to find land & build a homestead on it.

I do not have the freedom to walk across borders without being hassled.

I do not have the freedom to use drugs.(without consequences)

I am not free to get in a vehicle and drive unless I have a license a registration and insurance.

I do not have the freedom to carry a gun.

I have freewill and I have the freedom to make choices but there are consequences to some of those choices.  I am an adult fully capable of making decisions for myself but If I make a decision that the government/society doesn’t agree with I can & likely will go to jail. This to me means that I really don’t have the freedom that most of us believe we have. As long as decisions are made for me, without my input I will not ever truly be free. And that is my brief impatiently told opinion on freedom
