European Tribune - Why I keep underlining bad news
Freedom means anything that brings "growth" and "progress."

I'm sure there's a whole diary in what freedom is, I mean for much of the 70s and 80s freedom consisted of not having to queue in the shops  in Eastern Europe, and not having to have Identity cards or permission to travel widely.

However somehow, freedom to get a proper education, or proper medical care was never freedom for some reason I've never quite understood, however the freedom to charge people for medical care  was a freedom

Perhaps I just need to get a dictionary out to properly understand, as my knowledge just seems confused.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
