Freedom is the power that allows people to self-determine his or her ideas, it allows people to have the right to act, speak or think without being restraint.

“When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in he has no choice but to become an outlaw.” Freedom means different things to different people. For some people, it means you have the freedom to go for a walk without getting the police called on you. For some it may mean practicing the religion they choose, or where they work or live.

The first time I ever experienced freedom was when I came to America. Sometimes freedom ain 't really for all, you still have to follow all rules, and obey your parents. The word *Freedom* means to me is that you may have the right to do what you think is right, and you don’t really have to be one of those people out there that have no right. Even if you don’t have any right you can always dream, and experienced from the people around you, and your friends. When people always tell me what’s right, or wrong, that annoys me.

In the novel we see a people happily oppressed, as they obviously have no real power in their society. Yet they are entertained by their various diversions, all of which have no real value whatsoever except to keep the masses occupied. These people most definitely lack freedom, yet they don’t seek it.
