Only a Buddha can be free, a Mahavira can be free, a Christ,
a Mohammed can be free, a Zarathustra can be free,
because freedom means the man now is aware. If you are not aware then the state is needed, the government is needed, the police is needed, the court is needed.
Then freedom has to be cut from everywhere.
Then freedom exists only in name; in fact it doesn’t exist.
How can freedom exist when governments exist? — it is impossible.
But what to do?
If governments disappear, there will simply be anarchy.
Freedom will not come in if governments disappear, there will simply be anarchy.
It will be a worse state than it is now. It will be sheer madness.
The police are needed because you are not alert.
Otherwise, what is the point of having a policeman standing on the crossroad?
If people are alert, the policeman can be removed, will have to be removed, because it is unnecessary.
But people are not conscious.
