What is Freedom? Living in Black Americas society, freedom is one on the number of issues that brings out much conflict. Of course freedom is a word which contains inbuilt restrictions. A free society contains individuals who are free to do what they do, whilst respecting the freedoms of others. Freedom can define as many other different definitions. Are we actually living in a society where freedom actually exists to the full extent? Most times we are limited to what freedom is actually are.

But if freedom is our “civic religion”, why is the libertarian movement in the U.S. so small? Why are they making jails by the second? Why are government so big and our jails so full? Is all our talk of freedom mere lip service? Are does freedom really exists how it’s recorded?
