carrot face's definition of freedom

giuliani is gettin' scary!

"What we don't see is that freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be," he said at the forum, sponsored by The New York Post. "Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do."
anyone who wants to cede to king and generalissimo giuliani, raise your hand!
