When Humans Become Truly Free

When Humans Become Truly Free 

A poem written by Colin Ryan
True freedom is civilized freedom. It wears the diamond chain of religion and morals, and the golden collar of sound thinking.

Freedom allows people to do whatever they want, provided that they do not harm others and that they remain wholly devoted to the truth.

Many people who are actually imprisoned or in chains remain free in their conscience and so do not feel their imprisonment. Many others, however, do not taste the true meaning of freedom although they inhabit the grand spaces of palaces and gardens.
