“Freedom is regarded as something to be feared, rather than to be treasured or fought for. Limited, specific freedoms – civil liberties, freedoms-from – are tolerated because they are known, controllable factors. The idea of complete freedom, a freedom-to-act-as-we-see-fit, however, strikes dread into the heart of those with a negative or non-existent conception of human nature”.
