English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. freedom

    In general terms, it may be said that freedom is absolute, liberty relative; freedom is the absence of restraint, liberty is primarily the removal or avoidance of restraint; in its broadest sense, it is the state of being exempt from the domination of others or from restricting circumstances. Freedom and liberty are constantly interchanged; the slave is set at liberty, or gains his freedom; but freedom is the nobler word. Independence is said of states or nations, freedom and liberty of individuals; the independence of the United States did not secure liberty or freedom to its slaves. Liberty keeps quite strictly to the thought of being clear of restraint or compulsion; freedom takes a wider range, applying to other oppressive influences; thus, we speak of freedom from annoyance or intrusion. License is, in its limited sense, a permission or privilege granted by adequate authority, a bounded liberty; in the wider sense, license is an ignoring and defiance of all that should restrain, and a reckless doing of all that individual caprice or passion may choose to do — a base and dangerous counterfeit of freedom. Compare ALLOW; PERMISSION.

    Synonyms:

    captivity, compulsion, constraint, imprisonment, necessity, obligation, oppression, serfdom, servitude, slavery, superstition, thraldom

How to use freedom in a sentence?

  1. James Allen Isaacs Jr.:

    I am an Investigative, Historical Researcher….a Philosopher; I am Tsaphah. I am a political activist, dedicated to unveiling, disseminating, and preserving the Truth…at all cost and risk to my life. I stand for Freedom; and not just American Freedom, but the very essence of the Freedom our founding fathers described, envisioned, fought for, and established a nation upon. I seek through the past, to better understand my present…and how it will affect our future. I seek the lost knowledge…and to protect what knowledge we now have.

  2. Oscar Auliq-Ice:

    Independence of the media, freedom of the press, freedom of expression and the right of access to information are vital if the media are to be able to perform their watchdog function in a democratic society governed by the rule of law.

  3. Eric Hoffer:

    People unfit for freedom - who cannot do much with it - are hungry for power. The desire for freedom is an attribute of a "have" type of self. It says: leave me alone and I shall grow, learn, and realize my capacities. The desire for power is basically an attribute of a "have not" type of self.

  4. Eric Schaub:

    When it comes to freedom, we are but prisoners of our own desires.

  5. Rachel McCool:

    I have a whole new appreciation for the color of the sky, because when you're an addict and when you're in bondage, you see everything as black and white, as gray, i didn't see the beauty of this world, this world we're living in. Yeah, there's a lot of hurt and I understand that too, but there's a lot of beauty and there's a lot of freedom.
