Abuse of FREEDOM

For ages we were living in a dictatorship here in Egypt, there were many concepts we didn't even know and the most important one of them was the word FREEDOM .. 

Dictatorship not only the political way in which the governments had the power to govern without consent of those being governed, it was in every thing .. it made us - the people - imprisoned inside our minds and paralyze our thoughts, dreams even our emotions.

For ages the Egyptian society was imprisoned inside a dark room away from the outer world with all it's features ,But suddenly some of us found their way out !
when they saw what was happening outside that dark room, everyone created his own definition of the concept of freedom.

If u watched The Mummy - movie - you'll notice that the mummy was imprisoned for ages and ages but once it came again to life ! in our modern world .. it was like a stranger in a strange world .. nothing is the same .. it started acting in an abnormal way which didn't suit the world today but for the Blindfolded mummy it was normal ! .. why  ? simply > because it was blindfolded, again the mummy started to kill anyone come in it's way exploring that world ... Disturbance 

Freedom stands for something greater than just the right to act however I choose it also stands for securing to everyone an equal opportunity for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.


Freedom means more than just ‘free to do whatever I want’. Taken literally, that approach would produce anarchy every man, woman, and child for himself or herself. Fortunately, none of us has to live that way, .... why ? because we are living in the same society 
This in not Contradiction, i mean that you have to act they way you see suitable for yourself as your actions don't negatively impact other people's Freedom and here remember well that freedom stand for S.,R.,E.,R.

For example :
Because freedom entails political equality, freedom can only logically entail as much legal rights as compatible with the same legal rights in others. In a free society, any one person cannot have so many legal rights that all other people could not logically have the same amount of legal rights.

To remain logically coherent, we must make note of that distinction between defense and offense in our definition of freedom, which I have done by defining freedom as the legal allowance of all people in a society to do whatever they want insofar as they do not offensively harm or coerce other people against those other people's wills.

In our society now there are people who are committing crimes in the name of freedom because of people who are misusing their freedom 
we should adapt the concept of freedom to our society not just doing the process of [ copy & paste ] 

Between Freedom and Radicalism their is a thin line !
Yes if u tried to reproduce the western culture here in Egypt with this type of society which put it's red lines without any influence from anybody put it's own believes and traditions it would be Radicalism ! because it will be against the people's wills.
