One has freedom where there is freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and freedom of action. Of these three, freedom of thought cannot easily be modified by aggression/force. For a society of imperfect people to survive, there must be limits placed on freedom. Each person must be free from others' aggressions, for example. But as long as people have the right to speak out without being silenced, freedom stands a good chance.
I think our nation still is strong on freedom. Just look at the discussion we're having on war in Iraq. You wouldn't have such a discussion in Saudi Arabia or Iran.
