Most people people believe they are free without really knowing what freedoms are. Up until this week even I believed being free just meant you were free. However, after a closer look I stumbled upon the realization that theres a more in depth answer. Negative freedom and positive freedoms, two similar sounding phrases, but entirely different. From my understanding negative freedom means that you are free to have oportunities even though you might not take advantage of them. Positive freedom means means that you have the ability to go through with an oportunity. Both very similar and in some cases may even seem like one but may be the other. Let’s say a student fails a test, and because of it can no longer attend univerisity. Did it restrict his negative freedom because the test itself was made too hard for him to pass? or was his positive freedom restricted because he didn’t study enough?
