The principles that America was founded on promote it. But the U.S. government seems more interested in squashing citizens' freedom these days.

Yes, although recently we have strayed from those values

Yes and if you do not understand that go overseas and live for five years and see what that is like.

I'd got to the Netherlands for 5 years, but I'm afraid that I'll be so free that I won't want to come back.

True on some levels but very not true on others.

It was in the beginning, but the limitations and restrictions that were set and are currently being set move us away from freedom more and more. It's all an illusion of freedom.

Sure but it certainly is not the only country that does so, not even close to the only country.

We stand for it, but that doesn't mean that's what we always accomplish.

Freemocracy, Libertunity, and supercapitalism.

Margaret Thatcher made notice of a turn against freedom since 2009 in the US

Another great argument from a progressive. Do you guys ever stop to even think before making stupid statements?

How are those progressive statements?

What makes you think I'm a liberal?

Mine was a question, not a statement. But an educated guess puts you as a liberal.

More of a moderate, I was just being sarcastic earlier. I always respected Thatcher as a leader and stateswoman, but I seriously don't appreciate people from other countries judging us.

She made an observation, not a judgment, and a pretty good one I think.

It's an oversimplification. Our country's relationship with freedom has been more of a complex dance than a simple turn.

I just have to say: I'm noticing a trend. The 21-40-year-olds are consistently more narcissistic and pessimistic than either of the other two age groups

Hey hey! Maybe it's because we probably struggle the most financially? Most of the under 21s still live at home, I would guess. Most of the over 40s were probably somewhat settled when all this shitstorm started a few years ago with the economy.
