Freedom, in general, is the power to act or make changes without constraint. Something is free if it is not constrained in the state of its existence and can evolve freely. That is why people say things are free: they mean that whatever is being endowed is at its disposition to be used. The power of freedom thus stems from the fact that it is compatible with the fact that humans are rational creatures and capable of altering whatever their minds decide.
People’s freedom is most frequently associated with the individual liberty of speech and press, which includes freedom of expression as a right, and an interest in being able to hold certain views about, and to criticize, government and other public institutions, and a willingness to accept different opinions, even contradictory ones, about important issues, such as political party politics or religion. However, these freedoms also extend to a broader range of actions. Freedom of speech and press also give way to protection against defamation and other defamation as well as other actions aimed to intimidate or defame another individual. A person’s freedom of action, therefore, encompasses not only physical freedoms but also mental freedoms as well. This is where the concept of public health and freedom of health comes into play.
Public health is one instance of freedom of action that stems from the desire to maintain good human welfare. Good public health is necessary to the efficient management of the economy and the well-being of the people. For this end, people have a right to seek advice and be provided with information that they may need in making good decisions for themselves and their families. Also, the right to freedom of thought and freedom of speech guaranteed by the constitution and other legal provisions are necessary to safeguard the welfare state and guarantee the equal rights of citizens regardless of their race, tribe, color, sex, religion, or sex, and to ensure social equality.
Political freedoms, on the other hand, are the opposite of economic freedoms because economic freedom is rooted in economic prosperity. For this reason, human beings have been willing to fight for the economic freedom, which they believe is necessary to ensure their liberty and freedom. Also, unlike economic freedom, a person’s freedom of action and freedom of speech are tied tightly together. Consequently, when a person thinks that he or she is being attacked by another for his or her beliefs or opinions, he or she can take measures to protect those freedoms by going to the court and filing for a lawsuit.
Freedom of speech and press is another aspect of economic freedom that has become a cause cockey between economic freedom and political freedom. Because the press is an institution that promotes freedom of speech and dissemination of information, those who cannot find the courage to speak out for their freedoms face severe repercussions. For this reason, even if the press enjoys a free press charter, some areas have made it a requirement for any citizen to register as a reporter before covering a story. Also, laws against defamation and violence are designed to protect the vulnerable from the defamation and physical violence that may be directed at them.
In today’s world, people’s freedom of action and freedom of speech are being threatened by violence and intolerance. Therefore, human rights activists work constantly on improving the conditions for freedom of speech and press along with other freedoms in the political arena. The advancement of civil liberties ensures that people enjoy greater levels of freedom, which is necessary for freedom to flourish. When more people have the freedom to express themselves, politics no longer threaten the individual but enrich his or her life.
