A Comparison of Freedom in Beloved and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest - Theme of Freedom in Beloved and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest  Freedom as defined in Websterís dictionary is liberation from the control of another person or arbitrary power, a being able to act or move without hindrance or restraint.  My definition of freedom is altered from this due to the various experiences I have had. These experiences affect my perception of life and influence how I define freedom, just as another person would view freedom differently than me.  Freedom, as I perceive it to be, is the ability to live a life without any restrictions or limitations imposed on you by others.  You must have complete control over every aspect in your life.  Most people think of freedom only in the realm of the physical, but I believe that freedom is emotional as well.  In order to be considered free, you must be separate from your past.  You need to acknowledge your past and realize what has happened, but at the same time you need to move on.  You cannot allow your life to be lived according to what has happened in your past, or a cycle will ensue....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 2433 words

But is that conclusion the truth. Orwell didn't just intend 1984 as an attack on communism or socialism; instead it is both an attack and a rather prophetic warning against any authoritarian structure, including the authoritarian structure of capitalist democracies....   [tags: Comparison Compare Contrast Essays]
