    Which is more important?

    I was wondering what you think is more important. You can only pick one, so which is it? Don't cop out and say you want both, you can only pick one.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I put freedom, but I agree with Boo.

    I'm not as sure. If not secure, I will in one way or another be limited, confined. I keep thinking of Malow's hieharchy of needs.

    Freedom and capability are not the same thing.

    No they are not mutually exclusive. If you are not capable of being financially independent, then you are not free to be independent.

    Financial security is only present is there is significant freedom.
    Without financial security one could have all their money taken via all sorts of mechanisms; so one could have the freedom to have lunch but no money to buy it.
    Easy choice.

    My point was, you probably can't dunk. I know I can't. Does that mean I don't have the freedom to dunk? No. It means I am unable to dunk and there is a huge difference.
