Ok, been listening too much Janis Joplin, so now:
What is the difference between "Freedom" and "Nothing left to lose?"

ok freedom is a bad night out, whereas nothing left to lose is a bad night out at a casino

So why is it a bad thing?

I also think that as long as you are not dead there is always something left to lose.

Freedom for is too much for some people - they don't know what to do with that freedom. I guess what they mean is "unrestriction". True freedom is impossible, as you will always be plagued with the basic facts of life, such as the need for money, security, food, love, and all the rest of the that bullsh*t. It is also difficult to break free from you mindset - until you realise you have a mindset, how can you break free of it? And in that case, what do you replace it with?
It could be said that you are only truly free when you are dead. (But of course then you can't really appreciate it!)

Unrestriction should be too much for all people. But a world where everybode is free can't be. You can't be free to abuse your power if you don't have any. If you don't have any...how free are you...

havent had my morning coffee yet, but *I* know what I mean.

I'd certainly need a caffeine-fuelled explanation on that!!

Does being free mean that you can kill anyone you want whenever you like?

Well, what does "Freedom" mean?
I am not 100% sure...

BUT if freedom means that you have the right to do what you want, it will come on someone elses cost. So I don't believe in "freedom". I am not saying we are all slaves of society, we do have choices for everything we do, but they are limited.

Richard : 'Does being free mean that you can kill anyone you want whenever you like?'

If you take responsibility for your actions, this is a type of freedom - existentialism

If you don't then it's another form of freedom -
Americanism

These days freedom is status you acquire for a moment before it's commercialised and resold back to you ...
