Actually Snoofy, that's exactly what I mean.
There is no country on earth that is really free, although some are closer than others.
The best approach to freedom was probably the 1800s U.S., flaws and all (and it was the belief that people should be free that removed the biggest flaw, as opposed to a belief that their betters should take care of them...).
Attended a funeral for a 90 year old uncle recently. Was chatting with one of his old friends, who grew up in a mining family in one of the Carolinas.
He told me how during the 30s, when a truck came through town giving away free food, and his home did not have so much as a 25 cents in it, his mother told him 'this family does take assistance' (assistance being the word used at the time for 'free' government handouts)
There are many aspects of being free, and they are all important. Get as close as you can.
