17 Jun: True Freedom

reedom is a concept that most hold as innate to human flourishing. Being able to make choices autonomously, without coercion or tyranny are pillars of western democratic values. The concept doesn’t simply fly above the world of politics or within the ivory towers of academia alone, as pop culture is littered with symbolism around the spirit of freedom too. Contemporary music, art, film and literature fascinate over the ”freedom to be who you are” and much of our culture has at their foundation ideas around autonomy, human rights and entitlements.
