The answer to this is no for just about everyone. A better question would be "should you be free?" consider... if all humanity had equal freedom to do anything they wanted without any sort of constraint whatsoever what would the world be like?

The basis of morality it seems, is the management of human freedom. In some ways people ought to have certain freedoms restricted, such as the freedom to kill, steal, rape, and commit malicious or violent acts. Economically no one is free, we all must obey rules and regulations, because, ideally, those rules protect everyone from economic ruin, and make sure that goods and wealth are traded fairly, and that the proper taxes get paid ect.

And yet there are certain freedoms that are held sacrisanct, freedom of speech, the freedom to pursue happiness, the freedom to not be held against your will with no just cause, ect. Yet even these often have limits, you shouldn't spread malicious lies or gossip (in legal terms slander and libel) for example.

So no, none of us are free, but in all honesty, do you WANT us to be free?

Not at the moment. I'm at a very low point in my life.
