Freedom is something you can only assert. It cannot be granted to you.
There are slaves in free countries and free people in authoritarian dictatorships.
To be free means to have courage and dignity. To trust your own judgement and have humility that you might be wrong.
It means learning from others, but not submitting to them.
A free mind can live inside a prisoner and an enslaved mind inside a free man.
