EXAM 2 EXTRA CREDIT- Can freedom be forced? Would we be more free or less, if the law didn't compel us to pay our taxes and behave lawfully? How would you feel, as a law-abiding citizen, if your neighbor could get away with lawlessness?     

        Freedom is the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. Everyone of our ancestors migrated here for the sole purpose of freedom and opportunity. There are those who might think our freedom is restricted, limited, conditional, or restrained due to the laws we are obligated to follow but what these individuals don't understand is that these laws actually enforce and embrace freedom. What good is freedom of religion if our neighbors can freely cut off our heads if they do not agree with our beliefs? If we constantly live in fear from thinking our own thoughts and practice of free will then we are not truly free. Rules prevent people from the quest of taking away others freedom that way we can enjoy our own. And the only one who can take away our freedom by our standards is if you attempt or do take away someone elses.
