Can anyone explain this following quote:
"Freedom is a right to one's dignity as a man"
Slaves and prisoners don't have freedom. Thus they are not respected as men.
In one aspect, Freedom constitutes an absence of hindrance towards one's ability to make choices and execute actions. One who is bound by circumstance cannot experience personal dignity, because of subservience to such circumstance. The person cannot grow beyond the chains.
