No, quite the opposite. But we humans have developed some arcane systems to manage ourselves, systems in conflict with our biology, and conflict with freedom. Hence the juxtaposition you so rightfully point out.
First off, real freedom is a relative theory. Individual freedoms guarded by paradoxical rules of collective freedom. Freedom to each his own paired with the needs and rights of every sovereign nation (or other groupings) to stipulate as its collective interests. So far, our systems of economics are in utter violation of the most basic principles of freedom, for it asserts amongst many other fallacies a theory of absolutism incapable of capturing the relativity of humanity. The good-old flat world approach preached by an old religion of economics, desperately trying to convince the world a single model for the world must be best. No way.
Second, if you observe biology and its processes that have preceded us for 4.5 billion years or so, we must recognize all animals themselves employ an innate relativity theory of freedom within the boundaries of their capabilities—an implied paradox of freedom instilled by biological factors. Homo sapiens has evolved from acquiring food and water using pillage-and-plunder to manmade system of capitalism by which we acquire access to those resources less ruthlessly.
The problem is those exact systems are also in direct violation of the freedom that could have established a dynamic meritocracy and, thus, a renewable way of access like nature designed for us. Hence, the manmade systems intended to replace the pillage-and-plunder from our past merely deploy modern-day pillage-and-plunder, one less opaque to the general public but harmful nonetheless.
Twenty-nine thousand (29,000) children die every day from curable diseases, not because they are free, but because we have yet to build an operating-system for humanity that sets us all free from the embarrassing enslavement of ourselves. 15.8% of people in the U.S. are in severe poverty, with a quarter of all children in public schools on subsidized food support. Must I shower you with more evidence freedom is not at all beholden to everyone, not even in “the land of the free”?
We have built ballooning enslavement to oligarchic systems portraying to be free.
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free” — Goethe
A reason why I decided to invent a new operating system for humanity. A system that – for the first time – is poised to set us all free.
