Absolutely! even if those choices of time, place, and object are executed 9 to 5 with a shovel.

    Nice to make some money so you can go to a nice restaurant once in awhile.

    I like the "working for himself" part. To me that doesn't automatically infer selfishness, only the freedom to choose whether or not and with whom he will be charitable. A man who is taxed by government is not free. He is enslaved, and the fruits of his labor are not his own.

    Sweet. No adornment necessary.

    That's pure freedom, because freedom takes responsibility,even for "chosen time, place and object".

    Indeed! Indeed! while we "contrive to survive" (who said that guy's?) it will remain a dream. Of course ther are those taht do but there is 95% (may be higher) that don't. To have freedom you must first have discipline
