The Philosophy of Freedom is the fundamental philosophical work of the philosopher and esotericist Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925). It addresses the questions whether and in what sense human beings can be said to be free. ....more....

Philosophy is to find the Truth and the Truth is the most important part of freedom.

Freedom make people to do many things but people must see whether all of them are correct and just.

The most important part of freedom is the right to LEAVE. If you cannot seek another situation then you are functionally a slave. The ability to discriminate has nothing to do with it.

Discriminate is a broad word. Choosing: should I eat salad or cheese doodles? requires discrimination. Choose to attack white people or treat everyone the same? Judgement is absolutely essential, but prejudice is not. As for is it your right? Insane behavior is not allowed in this society.

But of course you are not being explicit in what you are talking about so I will have to be explicit for you. Mistreatment of people based on race, gender, age or sexuality is ILLEGAL in most civilized countries.

Actually it's vital that we discriminate - like, that is a bee, don't pick it up, you can tell by the colors of it. Or that is food, you can eat it, that is not. Or that is your wife, you may kiss her, that other woman is not. Discriminate is such a broad word. Discrimination only means recognizing the difference between things, like your car and other people's cars at a parking lot.

It is not part of freedom at all..."discriminate' has high connotation and denotation so poor choice of word...and since we are mind AND will, you miss whatever point you are trying to make, WHERE IS THE MIND+WILL combination?

.
  No, you can’t even get that in-depth without already being in a situation that has other values of ethics and morals in play, one does not merely decide out of self interest the right or wrong onto other cause of being onto oneself, the discerning perspective is only part of gathering more values to decide many equated resolves, and even then it is not the tell take end of debate or rebuttal, just a finding to propose further findings,

And to staple that to freedom, is of no right of a proprietary value, the statement tends to impose a finality to all, and no other choices allowed after the decision made, thus, not much freedom under dictatatorship or some fascist implementation of philosophics,
..

Yes, I go along with what Mr Smartypants has to say.
But he also doesn't go far enough - Philosophically.

For ALTHOUGH we all do want to live in a modern, a developed and civilised country we should also be looking toward
the future-say, just tomorrow for instance- and we have good experience of PAST MISTAKES to help us.

And in this respect I have gone with what I was taught and what me and my fellow students were taught and that
was that Philosophy itself should GET MUCH MORE INVOLVED not only within formal education but also in
"real everyday life".

For "rational studies" ("rationality") and taught college philosophy courses will only get us so far.
And concerning a civilised future that we may all want - a tomorrow free of dangerous climate conditions
and thus a dangerous & unstable world.

This is just one "right" to act and a more a call-to-action Now....
There are others such as peace-and-security in an overpopulated world which is even now only-being-controlled by heavy
use of computers which is of course an important example of Artificial Intelligence or A.I.
Overuse of computers and therefore the more-and-more usage of them in all our lives.
Not that such a reasonably sized modern society could make good use of such "A.I" - its
the frightening thought where computers could vast increase subtle coercion and compliance (to ANY authority)
leading our free civilised population being neglected with the disappearance of possible hard won "rights" and "freedoms",
these being neglected AND "overridden" to the point of their being overrided & forgotten/disappearing.

The only real freedom, total freedom, is to live all by yourself in the middle of a forest or on a desert island. As soon as you have TWO people you have rules--like 'This is MY toothbrush, this is YOUR toothbrush."

If you want to live in a modern, developed, civilized country, you have to put up with others. You have to treat people fairly and recognize them as all equal in the rights and privileges of citizenship.
