When I ask guys about what's most important to them in their life, almost universally they say, "The most important thing in my life is freedom".
When I ask them what that means to them, they usually tell me it's about being free physically, having no strains and responsibilities and nobody to answer to.
For a long time, I found that to be true. I agreed with that definition of freedom. I believed that you achieve a sense of freedom by being free in the outside world.
Then I stumbled uppon a book the 50th law.
In it there was a chapter about a boxer champion who was arrested for murder and later convicted to 3 consequtive life sentences.
