Freedom is cheaper than you think.

This is not freedom to retire. This is freedom to do the work one was born to do.

I happen to live in London- an area famous for its high costs and temptations to spend money and yet I am the freest man I know.
This may be more a reflection on the slavery of most peoples existence than m own freedom.
The short answer is that you probably can be free if you recognise freedom when it comes.
