Modern "freedom" comes in the form of oppression, violence, bombs, despotic leaders and most importantly in the form of slavery to the system of capitalism which in turn is based on slavery to our very own egos. I pray we all break the shackles of slavery and become free by riding the horse of our egos instead of letting our egos and the even greater capitalist egos ride us with whips.
Reminds me of Cem Karaca who sings (translated from Turkish "Bedava Yasiyoruz"):
Perhaps not bread and cheese
But bitter water is free
Freedom at the cost of the head
Slavery is free
We're living for free friends for free!
