Avoiding for a moment the dictionary definitions, to this writer freedom is the ability of a person to do those things he wishes, at least to the reasonable extent of not harming others. Freedom means that you can keep your home safely, have a right to work, learn, play, and do business. Independence refers more to the idea of a state or country which is not controlled by Another Country. Liberty refers (to me) to the idea of expressing yourself in writing, speech, religion, organizations, and movement without interference from the government.

All three ideas are closely related.

No country and no person has complete freedom, independence, and liberty. But some countries, like the United States, have extensive allowances of these three things, especially when compared to the relative tyranny of the 18th century kingdoms of Europe.
