well you've tapped the first source there, Leerock. Law is the first line of defense between you and your freedom. Freedom and Law are pretty much opposites. If you actually saw how many laws there are in your country, you wouldn't know what to do. In an attempt to gain the opposite of anarchy, control and governance, you have to implement rules and regulations, and for each one there's one less option you have. Now given that most laws are put in place for protection, ie. assaulting and murdering people is considered bad, so there's rules against it. However can you travel freely without restrictions or obstacles? can you park your car anywhere you want, even in cases of emergency? can you light certain plants on fire?
Next you're face with societal rules. Unwritten regulations that you are expected to abide by lest you be shunned by your surrounding populace. can you sit alone in a park filled with children with a camera in you possession? can you go to the bathroom anywhere other than a designated area? can you swear openly in public?
How about moral and ethical obligations? Being part of a family, community, or part of the working population you are obligated to hold certain values and maintain an unspoken kinship with those around you. We're all human and should work together. If a family member is sick or even dies then you are obliged to aid/sympathize/grieve for them. If you see someone being attacked you're to help them or call the police. If you accidentaly knock up your girlfriend it's in bad judgment to evade the situation. This is the selfish part of your freedom. with the presence of others your freedom diminishes. The greater the population the less freedom you attain. Unless of course your a selfish ass.
You can even apply restrictions of your freedom to the natural world if you so choose, not to mention religious rule. Point being, you will never know what freedom truly is in your lifetime.
"In truth, death may be the only absolute freedom there is!"
