  1. Freedom is first and foremost responsibility. Read Fromm's Escape from Freedom. Personally, this point of view is closer to me. For example, under the Soviet Union, a person was not free, but there was no particular responsibility: he graduated from the institute, went to a factory, and retired. Everything will be decided for you. Not only how to live, but also how to think. Beauty. Now-fly where you want, do what you want and be who you want, but you will also be responsible for what you get. Many people in our post-Soviet latitudes are not ready for freedom, because they do not want to take responsibility. People are still used to putting the responsibility on the “tsar” and being content with what they give. And here everyone decides for themselves. How important it is for you, as a modern person, to manage your own life.

  2. What is freedom? How much is it necessary for a modern person?

    I am not good at clever phrases and philosophy, but I will write my suggestions on this issue.�

    Answer to the first question:
    � �Freedom is the greatest number of possible options for action. When there is something to choose from.
    Answer to the second question:
    � �Freedom is important for a modern person, which is why he has it. I'll justify my assumption… If a person wanted to, he could do anything (within the limits of what is possible…a person will not be able to jump on the roof of a 10-story building from the ground, unless he invents a device that will help him in this…which is also real at the present time). All human desires have tools for their fulfillment. The only difference is how many steps he will have to overcome before fulfilling his main goal.
    � �Freedom is a great gift that was given to everyone, so you need to learn how to use it correctly=)

  3. the concept of Freedom needs to be defined more precisely – by Freedom, some understand “free flight”, and others “free fall”. The first is really freedom, and the second is just what it seems, but in reality it is a fall.

    The Marquis de Sade was a preacher of absolute freedom, which would not be limited by morality, religion, or law. The main value of life was considered to satisfy the aspirations of the individual. This is so, a small touch to the theme, as if a colorful illustration of some “freedoms” in their seemingly “perfect” execution.

    Whatever you say, freedom and captivity (slavery) are interconnected with each other – you can not be absolutely free, there is no freedom without certain restrictions, and restrictions are not always unfreedom, but often and densely they are just the way to freedom, such as train rails, which not only limit the train, but also direct it. Because of a lack of understanding of these facets, a person who wants to be freer often goes out the wrong door and eventually gets even less freedom than he had before, although everything can be corrected.

    where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. (2 Corinthians 3: 17)

    The Holy Scripture says that a person who wants to be free must devote himself to obedience to the commandments of God and vice versa: free from the commandments of God, from the righteousness of God-such a person is a slave to sin. From this it follows that every man is both a free man and a slave, but there is a difference in his position regarding the commandments and the righteousness of God: a servant of God is free from sin and vice versa, a free man from the righteousness of God is a slave of sin, but the measure of slavery and freedom for everyone can be different. Freedom in my understanding is freedom from sin and it is also necessary for modern man.

    • We must be slaves to the laws to be free-Cicero

    • The easiest way to enslave a person is to let them believe that they are free.

    • There is no slavery more hopeless than the slavery of those slaves,

    he who believes himself to be free from fetters.� Goethe

  4. We go from the opposite. Freedom is not the presence of something, but on the contrary. Freedom is the absence of restrictions. But good in moderation. There will always be restrictions that are voluntarily accepted by the majority: morals, law, and traditions. Without this, there will be no order. You can start an endless debate about what all of the above is and what (positive or negative) role it plays, but this is a completely different story.
