Reader comments about this quote:
A lot of truth to that. Most living within the boundaries of the USA have only experienced a mere proverbial mention of freedom, lacking corporeal illustrations thereof. Freedom is outside the vast majority of religious, secular, academic, philosophical and conceptual realities of the above stated group. Most would claim varying degrees of slavery to be freedom.

    Freedom is an inalienable expression of the being. In context of the quote, that inherent freedom isn't known, understood or realized by corporeal man until experienced. The occupying statist theocracy that infests this land, world wide elitist banking cartels, church (government) schools (academia in general world wide), media complex, etc. as well as innumerable others have changed the meaning of word's and concepts sufficiently as to render a substantive cognition or tangible illustration of freedom or liberty an almost impossible task. The possibility does exist to experience freedom, it is inherent in the soul of man !

    Words cannot truly explain -- life is in the living of it.
