Freedom

I am a visitor among around a third of a billion people, I don’t feel I can be one for Political opinion. I have, however, been thinking about freedom. This is not really a topic of British Politics but it seems to come up as an important point for so many over here. It is very important for many that their freedom is protected. To my understanding this must mean that everyone has the right to be or become who it is they truly wish to be within society. Have I got that correct?
