Modern Western society is essentially based on an anything goes morality, as long as it doesn't hurt anybody, then do it (hurt is subjective, but that's by the by in this instance).
But is there any inherent good in freedom, and do people generally see a benefit in freedom, despite what our modern society says?
I think that human beings by nature seek out the means to suit our own ends and life, and freedom essentially is a lack of restraint. This can even mean finding food to eat, maintaining a household, or basic elements of living as a human being. But does it matter if people do, or should, have a lack of restraint in most affairs? IMO, it's just a function of personality, as some people are naturally more ego-driven/free-spirited than others.

"freedom to___"=no restraint
"freedom from___"= no restraint
All societies, whether they want to be freed to do something, or want freedom from something, value the lack of restraint.
