What is Freedom?

Freedom is self mastery. It is being able to decide which way your path will go. Will I stay in school? Will I steal or will I abide by the law. As you grow older your freedom increases in some ways and decreases in others. An example is homework, your parents will most likely make you do your homework or consequences will apply. But when your older parents will encourage you to study but most likely won't force you. Another example is maturity, as a child you have the freedom to be immature free of being judged. As an adult being immature is frowned upon.
