Freedom, is something interesting. It comes in about 6 forms. The ones I thought of were: Political freedom, Religious freedom, freedom of love, freedom from work, freedom that kids like me want, and freedom of choice. These are pretty basic. Let me explain them all.
Number 1: Political freedom. That’s hard for me to explain, since I don’t have much experience as a kid with that. So lets say voting. Voting is also with freedom of choice. These days, there is this thing with HST. I don’t really know what it is, but I think it is a kind of tax. Well, some people don’t like it, so they have signs and all that, to stop it. The people who do it have freedom, to do what they wish. OK, I am probably off topic, but that’s probably since I don’t know much about it.
Number 2: Religious freedom. Not good at that either but I know more of this than political freedom! OK, long ago, people didn’t really have freedom of religion. So they killed the people who worship a god different than the leaders. Which is why there are a lot of saints. Now, people who live in a place that you have to listen to 1 god, and worship him, and don’t, have to go to jail. That isn’t fair. What do they feel? What if you were forced to do what you didn’t want to do? So that is what that’s about.
Number 3: Freedom of love. In stories, like Romeo and Juliet, you can’t be with who you love, than you die. Strange, isn’t it? Cause now, they just set revenge. Anyway, nowadays, when people can’t be with other people, they do what they can, and of course, go to jail. Like all kinds of freedom you don’t get, it isn’t fair.
Number 4: Freedom from work. That , I believe, is what my dad needs. So some people who don’t have this freedom are very stressed. And might feel sad at times, for absolutely no reason. At school, I feel like there is much work, and I get frustrated. So I take a small break, and I can do everything after.
Number 5: Freedom for kids. I feel like I’m missing this freedom. But whatever. Kid freedom is like being able to do what everyone else can do. Basically. Some 10 year olds don’t think like I do. So I think a lot about stuff grown ups think about. Kid freedom is being able to go 3 blocks away from home alone. Or cross the street to go to the park. See? We need freedom, too.
Last, but definitely not least, Number 6: Freedom of choice. That’s kind of in every freedom I talked about. It’s nice to be able to do what you want to do, right? No matter how old you are, you have choices. And you want to be able to choose, right? If you are a kid, your parents pick most of the choices, right? Learn from them, and you’ll know how to choose.
Not that’s out of the way, I can talk about other types of freedom. The ones above are basically how to know your way around life, I guess. Earlier, I asked my mom about what she thought about my topic. She said it was a hard topic for younger people to write, but I can. Well, I said I can. Oh yeah, my mom also said that there is a freedom that is even more interesting: Freedom in the world. You know, belonging, and being in the world, and the way you feel, in it. It’s hard to explain. That is freedom in my eyes. For now.
