Only freedom developed on the basis of a realistic view of who we are and how we relate to others can be authentic –  and extended universally to all.  If we acknowledge our interdependence,and take into account the vast networks of interconnections in which our lives and actions are embedded, we will find that our own freedom is inseparable from the freedom of all other people.  When we truly appreciate this fact, we experience  interdependent freedom – a freedom that does not detract from others’ freedom.  This is the freedom that we can all enjoy together without conflict.
