Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Are you a rube? I don't believe I would even think in those terms.

If you want to use that gage as the amount of freedom, then so be it. But most use a wide variety of measurements to get the number.

And if you can't check out any book that you want at the library? Or even start your own book club for local residents-what does that mean?

I once met a group that traveled around Cuba for a while, and yes it was very enlightening for myself. But once they questions from the audience, I asked them if they had visited any libraries even if at universities. Well no they had not. They felt that was a trivial thing to explore and was not where true freedoms are measured.

From my experiences, I saw that any philosopher I wanted to read about was there. Orwell, to Marx to Hitler...
