What does political freedom mean to an individual?

Casey Report – 3/2010

…what does political freedom mean to an individual? For some, it’s the right to tell your neighbors what they can and can’t do. For most, it’s the right to cast a meaningless vote for one hack instead of another. And for others, it’s an invitation to become one of the hacks. The idea of political freedom is essentially a sales pitch – buy the right to vote for just 40% of your income, and we’ll send you freedom of religion at no additional cost.”
