The state of being free; liberty; self-determination; absence of restraint ; the opposite of slavery. The power of acting, in the character of a moral personality, according to the dictates of the will, without other check, hindrance, or prohibition than such as may be imposed by just and necessary laws and the duties of social life. The prevalence, in the government and constitution of a country, of such a system of laws and institutions as secure civil liberty to the individual citizen.”



Black’s Law Dictionary, Second Edition, HENRY CAMPBELL BLACK, M.A.
ST. PAUL, MINN. WEST PUBLISHING CO. 1910



Liberty; the right to do what is not forbidden by law. Freedom does not preclude the idea of subjection to law; indeed, it presupposes the existence of some legislative provision, the observance of which insures freedom to us, by securing the like observance from others. 2 Har. Cond. L. R. 208.



Bouvier’s Law Dictionary SIXTH EDITION John Bouvier PHILADELPHIA CHILDS & PETERSON, 124 ARCH STREET 1856


1. Being free, e.g.: a the absence of necessity or constraint in choice or action. b liberation from slavery, bondage, imprisonment, or restraint.




Editorial note


Freedom is a state of liberty, guaranteed by the law to the extent that it bestows personal freedoms (of thought, speech, assembly etc) on the individual and protects physical freedom from assault by others or by agents of the state. Freedom of the individual exists within society when the only restraints serve to prevent harm to other individuals- Geoffery Robertson”

Freedom

Waving of hands in the air demonstrates the releasing of mind and emotions to rhythmic dance from the psychological bonds that restrains from the subversion of psychological determinism. It's the continuance of standing up for your views and reinforcing it daily, and not relinquishing it voluntarily. Movement in purple with neon strips emerges from the purple hues of the backdrop illuminating to a perfect smile.
