Freest Countries

There are many factors that must be considered in order to determine the extent of freedom within a given country. There are more obvious markers, too, however. One of the clearest indicators of freedom within a country is whether or not the individual citizens of that country can legally and without fear of retribution or punishment criticize those who hold power within the government. Certain protections for the press, who have also historically questioned the authority of the government, is also a good indicator of a country’s freedom. 

One of the next clear indicators of freedom within a country is whether or not the citizens of that country have the opportunity to fully own the property on which they live—whether it be a small home or a large plot of land. But even with this indicator, the concept of freedom differs according to one’s philosophical and political outlook. A core tenant in liberalism for instance is the individual and a right to property. While others, with a more communal culture and outlook, believe in the community and the communities overall right to land and property. Each group believing their concept of freedom to be correct.

Governments may guarantee freedom to the people of their country, but the biggest obstacle in the way of freedom, for most people who aren’t free, isn’t government tyranny but rather poverty. With few exceptions, the countries with a high Gross Domestic Product (GDP) tend to be the most free, and if a country is wealthy due to its economic success it is highly likely that many of the individuals within that country have greater freedom of mobility and choice regarding their frequency of travel and relative level of comfort and stability.
