Some View Freedom as a Weakness

 If one were a dictator or a collectivist dictatorship leader then freedom could be viewed as a weakness in the paradigm of absolute rule and power. Free individuals may offer anti-state, dissentient opinion disturbing to ruling elites.

The degrees of freedom refer to the number of dimensions of possible activity that a soul may journey upon. Physics and fate may place numerous bindings upon individuals that require intelligent, creative thought to overcome. Such ideas among the oppressed are anathema to those oppressing others.

There is an ancient philosophical maxim that expressed the relationship between freedom and servitude; ‘If you are happy with your head in a pile of crap, don’t stick your neck out’.
