Freedom

In response to www.DreamofTheNet.org Guy said:

“Been reading this week how the Athenians didn’t really have a positive concept of liberty until the Spartans tried to take democracy away from them. It had always been “freedom from…” various types of outside interference. I think our generation and the ones below are getting that way too. We never had to fight for our freedom in any meaningful way so we regard unfreedom as a disturbance. Maybe one of the benefits of technology will be give us the sense of positive engagment with freedom that conflicts use to supply!”
