The way I think of it, freedom is relative to the harmonies of life, i.e it would be pointless without consideration for constructive relationships. The interpretation of freedom as meaning to have no boundaries doesn't support life. The constitution is a set of boundaries which defines ones freedoms.
I also think that the nature of many situations in our lives today, that is also very much present in the political one, is one of a spiritual awakening. I see these things as the culminating point of the isolationist / materialist world view, and that in many ways we are making choices between unity and righteousness, or materialism and deceit.
Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.
