There is no absolute freedom for we live in the world where you,he/she and I come from different countries
and have different cultures,characters and habits.etc
I am agree with that economy affects superstructure a certain extent.
Like never before and never again.

Any concept is defined in terms of its opposites. Freedom as such does not exist unless lack of freedom does.

By positing that freedom is the opposite of being poor you have given it a different interpretation to what most people give it: You fail to see a human being's striving for intellectual in.de.pendence as one of the highest forms of freedom.

Just think if we all were "millionaires" we would despise each other. No one would be free because we all would belong to the same class. You cannot be "free" and be a member of a despised class.

Freedom

Good question, mw.
I guess the best or the real freedom there can be is in our head - our thinking, curiosity, intelligence... But in real life, freedom is restricted one way or another socially, financially, behaviorially, politically, etc.
Freedom is always a qualified term, at least on this earth I would say.
