FREEDOM definitions in our Dictionaries have many meanings.

1.0 ability to act freely; 2.0 release from captivity or slavery; 3.0 country’s right to self-rule; 4.0 right to act or speak freely; 5.0 absence of something unpleasant; 6.0 ease of movement; 7.0 right to occupy place; 8.0 honorary citizenship; 9.0 frankness; 10.0 excessive confidence or familiarity and 11.0 free will are the interpretations of the single word in the dictionary.

Urban design for all involved in the design fields is a quagmire of continuing struggles for expressions of individual freedoms from the tyranny contained by principalities and powers that covertly control human behavior under the guise of secret and hidden agendas.

1.0 The state of being free or at liberty rather than a placement under physical restraint. (He won his independence after a retrial.)

2.0 Exemption from external control, interference, or regulation.

3.0 The power to determine action without restraint.

7.0 The absence of or release from ties or obligations.

Freedom to create urban planning and designs for villages, towns, cities, regions, ego-states and national capitals requires building intimate informational relationships with friends and colleagues that matter for real improvement purposes.

Clarification of mutual individual understanding of priorities for citizen-leadership decision-making of wise choices is paramount.
