This study makes quite interesting reading, not the least because my country won!

It seems that the concept of freedom is actually fairly poorly understood by many people, it is also interesting that countries traditionally seen as an example of holding 'freedom' ideals are actually steadily sliding down the list.

3 Hong Kong

This thread, unlike most, is illuminating.  One posts claims homosexuals suffer Iran-like oppression.  (Very funny.  Want to own Disney World for a day?  Be gay!)

Others think freedom means public drunkenness.

What's another measure of freedom?  When they stretch that far to find something to offer.
