What is freedom?
Freedom is being able to do whatever you want, without gaining any undesirable effects.
Freedom is a simple paradox, something impossible that we constantly seek. Is freedom that is constrained still freedom, or is it imprisonment?
If we live within a world with a free-market, although we could buy and sell whatever we want, those who make, who work for others have no freedom, they are forced to work tirelessly or face death, they are slaves of the rich, as what we would become. Whereas in a communist society, there is forced equality, you do not have the opportunity to rise above others or fall below others, you are stuck inside of a equilibrium. With laws, we can punish those who do wrong, but with laws comes the opportunity for injustice, without justice, there is no injustice. In a world without laws, we do not have the freedom of luxury, to relax inside of laws, as life would be a constant battle to survive, as it is now in lawless countries.
We are irrational creatures, seeking for something which does not and cannot exist. Freedom is overrated, peace, is not. A utopian society would not have laws, as wherever there are laws, there are those who break the laws, whether their actions are just or unjust. A utopian society, is one where life is not a constant battle and where people accept equality from existence. Existence is harsh and brutal, it is fierce and merciless, that doesn't mean society must be the same. Society should be people who work for each other, who work for the needs of others, to preserve peace and life. Although to gain this there must be conflict due to the dialectical nature of society, yet absolute existence is a metaphysical plane which doesn't change, its brutality, its nihilism never ceases to exist, yet we fight for freedom, something which is used as an excuse for murder, for power, for wealth. People do not realize their dependency on society, yet they abuse this and do not try to destroy social hierarchy, they let it pass and claim that they are not in the wrong because they aren't doing anything, yet sometimes doing nothing is in itself abandoning others. We should work for a set of shared values, abandon selfish needs and work to preserve peace and society. Peace cannot be achieved through peaceful methods, for the wealthy, those who have been indoctrinated with a desire for power abuse this and disallow peace, constantly seeking power over others. Through the destruction of power, of wealth, of class, comes a society with peace, a utopian society with equal opportunity for all, you may call this unfair, but I say that this is the true essence of freedom.
