Whether a man is free or not does not depend on a range of choice, but more so on his ability to shape his course of actions as relates to his intentions, or whether someone else has the power to manipulate the conditions to make him act according to that person's will as opposed to his own.Freedom is the independence from the arbitrary will of another. Are you really free?
@Jimmy on the free question, the anarchist historian Rudolph Rockersaid...
"Anarchism is not a fixed, self-enclosed social system but rather a definite trend in the historic development of mankind, which, in contrast with the intellectual guardianship of all clerical and governmental institutions, strives for the free unhindered unfolding of all the individual and social forces in life.
Even freedom is only a relative, not an absolute concept, since it tends constantly to become broader and to affect wider circles in more manifold ways. For the anarchist, freedom is not an abstract philosophical concept, but the vital concrete possibility for every human being to bring to full development all the powers, capacities, and talents with which nature has endowed him, and turn them to social account. The less this natural development of man is influenced by ecclesiastical or political guardianship, the more efficient and harmonious will human personality become, the more will it become the measure of the intellectual culture of the society in which it has grown."
