Definition Essay On Freedom

Good Essays
Freedom is a desirable right, one in which is paramount to an individual's mental well-being. The Oxford Dictionary states that freedom is, “the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants.” Freedom can however be jeopardised when a person is enslaved, meaning that “... individuals are owned by others, who control where they live and at what they work.” Although abuse may affect one's physical health, both spiritual and emotional freedom can be obtained when one chooses to follow the word spoken by the Lord.

    Freedom, as being total and absolute, does not exist. This word is used constantly in historical text and our everyday speech. People use this word to justify many of their actions, and saying things like, “It’s my constitutional right” or “I have the freedom to do so.” Oxford Dictionary defines freedom as, “the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint”; however; I wonder if we truly have any freedom in the world. We are all obligated to go to nine-to-five jobs or required to go to school even if we do not actually want to. We all have rights protected under a government but cannot do whatever we truly want without hindrance. People feel a sense of freedom and power to do things within the parameters…

    You ask me "What freedom means to me? " I don't really think about these things. Now that I am I think that I have something to say about it. Freedom is something that shouldn't be taken for granted. Freedom for me is something we abuse. For example freedom of speech we use that like its nothing people in other places don't have that freedom. Most people don't think about freedom as we do stuff during are day. We don't usually think "How did we get our freedom? " well that's a good question. People fought for are freedom we don't think about that, people risked their lives for us. There are still people who risk their lives for freedom people who can't do what we do, people who don't have equality. They cant say what they want or do what they want. I couldn't imagine myself without freedom not being able to say what I want or do.…

    The meaning of freedom has changed throughout time, its face is best defined by those who struggle, fight, and even die for it. In ancient Rome, slaves, often referred to as gladiators, fought to the death in the Colosseum for the morbid delight of the crowd. If the slave fought like a lion and pleased the crowd, they would on rare occasions by virtue of the Pollice verso (with thumb turned) find it within themselves to grant the slave freedom. In an elaborate ceremony, a gladiator who won freedom was given a symbolic token, a wooden sword named rudis. It must be noted that although the slave was free, they were never allowed Roman citizenship (“Rudiarius”). Imagine, being unshackled for the last time, no longer needing to literally fight for your life, receiving the rudis and walk out of the Colosseum, free. Today, the Merriam Webster’s Dictionary definition of freedom is, “the quality or state of being free: the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action” (“Freedom”). Although freedom can be described adequately with words, the word and what it means is epitomized by those who have not only struggled for it, but more importantly they have made it their mission to fight for the freedom of others!…

    Over the course of many centuries the idea of freedom has been tossed back and forth, constantly being modified to fit the standards of those times. This ideology has also steadily progressed through history. As far back as history can tell us, freedom was virtually non-existent. People were under the absolute rule of kings and monarchs. As revolts and rebellions occurred against these monarchs the idea of freedom gradually evolved. Citizens began to recognize that they were equal as human beings and had rights, thus refused to blindly follow their incapable leaders any longer. With this change also came…

    America is a unique country, founded on the principle that we are endowed with “certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Yet today, through taxes and regulations, government takes half of what each American earns. Government regulates what goods and services entrepreneurs can offer consumers, and restricts consumer freedom to buy many goods from other countries. Politicians currently are trying to restrict or ban what we can smoke, where we can use our cell phones, what we can view on the Internet, and which fattening foods we can eat. How is it that the people of a country dedicated to freedom put up with such restrictions from political elites? Do Americans still value freedom? Americans…
