The oracle of Marseille presents the arcana of freedom in the form of a woman dressed in a toga, holding a torch in her left hand, hand next to the heart and a book in her right hand. The torch symbolizes freedom and enlightenment of the world, while the book represents knowledge, law and justice. Paradoxically the law promotes freedom while limiting it to allow life in society. It is not pure freedom.At her feet, the chains have been broken, she is free, walking on a checkerboard floor, made of black squares and white squares. A pointed cubic stone is next to it. It reminds us of an iconic monument located on the island of Liberty Island in New York, Statue of Liberty. This statue was gifted by France to the United States in 1886 to celebrate the friendship between the two nations and commemorate the abolition of slavery in the United States. Since then, the Statue of Liberty has become a symbol of freedom and democracy around the world. The Statue of Liberty is also known for its famous poem “The New Colossus” written by Emma Lazarus , which is engraved on a bronze plaque inside the statue’s pedestal. The poem celebrates the freedom and opportunity that America represents for immigrants from around the world. This freedom also reminds us of a well-known painting by Eugène Delacroix painted in 1830, “liberty guiding the people”. This painting represents an undressed woman, tricolor flag in hand, walking on barricades strewn with dead people with an armed militia behind her. The woman named “Marianne” wears a Phrygian cap. The painting is rich in symbols and historical references, including the Phrygian cap, which was a symbol of freedom during the French Revolution. This freedom is born from a revolution. Finding freedom requires creating a revolution. Without revolution, there is oppression! Freedom reminds us that it is a constant battle and that we must fight to preserve this status enshrined in our law.The Statue of Liberty is asymbol of hope for people seeking to escape tyranny and persecution in their home countries.
Freedom resonates in each of us differently. If in our society we regularly hear that “the freedom of some people stops where those of others begin”, then this admits that there can be disproportion in the space of freedoms of some people, with regard to the freedom of others. Freedom must be seen through a prism of equality and fairness. “Freedom is built with that of others”.There can be no freedom without equality and equity combined. These 2 notions form the tandem of a fairer system and are inseparable. Anarchy is, according to my point of view, positive, because it allows freedoms to be claimed in the face of the oppressor in his quest for equality and fairness. It is the necessary disorder which nourishes the present order towards more freedom.It is the freedom present under the image of revolt.It is the storm which regulates moods. Anarchy, even if it is necessary, remains a utopia as a model of society. The human being always organizes himself around a leader and believes in unconditional freedom, based solely on common sense , good morals and benevolence have no meaning. This is the concept of heaven. Man organizes himself in society through relationships of dominance.Absolute freedom is not possible.Freedom also means fighting against the oppression of the strong.Freedom is never fully acquired when we live in society. We strive as much as possible towards this goal, like this stone cut with a point.
Another view of freedom is the distinction between “private freedom” and “public freedom.”These two important concepts are often put in opposition, although in reality,there exists some consensus between the two.Private liberty refers to individual rights and freedoms,such as freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom of choice, and freedom of association. These freedoms are continually protected by the Constitution. While public liberty focuses on collective rights and freedoms that are important to society as a whole, such as freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and freedom to protest. These 2 forms of freedom are interdependent and mutually reinforcing.For example, freedom of expression is considered an individual freedom, but it is also essential to enable free and open public debate. Likewise, freedom of assembly may appear to be a public freedom, but it is otherwise important in allowing individuals to come together to express their concerns and opinions. Finally, private freedom and public freedom are both important and must be protected in a balanced way for a fairer and more balanced society.
All his visions of freedom should enrich us so that we can live our freedom fully. Even if everything is not perfect, freedom remains an everyday fight against to different forms of power and dominance.
