to those who are not free."

    There are despotic slaves at heart (by way of example, those patrons of compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity [income / property / life taxes, funny money, etc.] and non-recognition of inalienable rights / natural law). There are the noble free (few having ever tasting a full liberty).

    This is why those that have 'freedom' handed to them on a platter shortly lose it. Freedom must be won by every individual and must learn how to keep it.
