32. That's because it is being used incorrectly. This is license, not freedom..

 

"and legal philosophy, there exists a distinction between the concepts of freedom and license. The former deals with the rights of the individual; the latter covers the expressed permission (or lack thereof) for more than one individual to engage in an activity.

and

"Freedom is operating within the bounds of restraint and responsibility: taking license is not."

and

It is lived in practice at the Summerhill School.
"In creating its laws and dealing out sanctions, the school meeting generally applies A. S. Neill's maxim "Freedom not Licence" (he wrote a book of the same name); the principle that you can do as you please, so long as it doesn't cause harm to others. Hence, you are free to swear as much as you like, within the school grounds, but calling someone else an offensive name is licence.

It is upon these major principles – namely, democracy, equality, and freedom – that Summerhill School operates.

Using freedom for everything makes it harder to value, but that's just my opinion.
