Freedom, What Is It?

If you asked the first man you met in the street to tell you what freedom is, where it comes from, and why we love it, his reply might not be very satisfying or complete. If you asked the second or third man the same question, the results might not add much to your desire for a clear answer.

All of which goes to show that we can all learn something about this thing we call freedom, something we admit is so vital to us that we will sacrifice all human things before we will allow ourselves to be robbed of it. Any good thing so naturally loved by the great majority of the human race must have its root in what is basic and real. It must be native to the right order of life and manhood, must be inseparable therefrom. It must originate in, and proceed from, the cause of all real values, even God.
