Are we ever really Free? Does Freedom exist?


Have you ever wondered if we ever really have freedom or whether freedom is just an overrated word.
NO! We are never really free.
I realized most of us confuse Freedom for Peace. We can have peace, but that's not the same as freedom.

According to Merriam Webster dictionary
Freedom is
:  the quality or state of being free: as
a :  the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action
b :  liberation from slavery or restraint or from the power of another :  independence

So you see, we are never rid of constraints in action. Most of Our choices have effect on those around us, so we have to consider those close to us before making certain decisions. That's not Freedom!
We  are bound by the Laws of the land till the day we die. That's not Freedom.
As a country, We gained our independence but are we free? No! Not as long as we have bodies that keeps our actions in check like the EU, AU etc.

Peace however is defined as

:  a state of tranquillity or quiet: as
a :  freedom from civil disturbance
b :  a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom <a breach of the peace>
2
:  freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions
3
:  harmony in personal relations

We always confuse that 2nd definition of peace with freedom. Its different.
We finish an exam and we scream "Finally I'm  free". No, now you have peace of mind or what I call a small scale freedom.

Small scale freedom in the sense that you're now free from that particular course.
The moment you graduate, you're Free from school but then, you're now bound by the rules of your work/ organization and ultimately, the rules of the land.

Peace is what we have, Not Freedom.
I mean Freedom can only be achieved in a lawless country and that would be dreadful. I can't even begin to imagine.

Some one asked me if we get freedom I'm death. Sadly, my response was NO. Whether In Heaven or hell, we still have a duty. There's Peace In heaven & that's the best we can get.

In Life & in death, there's no such thing as Freedom.

So I say freedom is another prison with extended boundaries.
