    Someone here said that you either have freedom or you don't but I disagree.

    Janis said "freedom is just another word for nothing left to loose" There is a lot of truth in that until you starve and freeze to death. The homeless are not free. They are not free of worrying about where their next meal is coming from.

    I see Freedom as also being anarchy and needs to compromised to assure freedoms for others.
    You are not free to kill the guy beside you because he passed gas or both of you cannot have freedom.

    Freedoms have to be defined before we can agree if those freedoms are good.

    That's an asinine thing to say

    This is what we mean about your reading abilities. There is no such statement in @Hoosier8 's post.
    You are famous for changing the meaning of words. That is why you never overcome any argument or debate.
