The following discussion clip is from the Occupy Wall Street demand discussion list.

A lot of people truly misunderstand FREEDOM, and actually believe they can have it and are ENTITLED to it. While the concept of freedom can be used as a goal, actual freedom does not, and can not exist. It’s just an idealized concept. As long as there are two or more people who are restricted in some way to use a common resource – air, water, land, roads, buildings etc. – then absolute freedom is impossible. And even if a person goes off to live alone, freedom of action is still limited by the environment and material reality. GET OVER IT!

There is a discussion of this at on the Democracy tab.
