On July 7th we gathered at the HERE Rehearsal Space to delve into different topics related to Freedom.  Our conversation was animated and complex, both reflecting optimism and ambivalence of varying points of view in relation to this personal, local and national ideal.   Over the next week we will post transcripts of those conversations.  We want to open up this dialogue to our larger community.  We want to know how freedom relates to the American Dream and your relationship to freedom.  Thank you to all who attended, it was a thought provoking discussion.

Freedom Think Tank Topics Generated:

-How ‘free’ is democracy?

-Personal freedom vs. community

-Freedom vs. equality

-Freedom vs. Security- false binary?

-Freedom and Corporate Interests

-Responsibilities/Mandates for those with Freedom

-Freedom from want- “want” of what?  What are we entitled to as Americans?

-Freedom as a privilege.

-Are you free?

-What do you give up for Freedom?

-What is the cost of Freedom?
