    Freedom is an essential part of the good life. One cannot be living a good life if he/she is not free to do what he/she wants. However, with freedom comes the moral understanding of what can and cannot be done by the individual. If one is supposed to be living without boundaries then having the boundaries of morality stop unjust acts, this brings to itself what can and cannot be done by the individual. Thus, this brings an overall contradiction to the word freedom. Rousseau wrote, “Man is born
