This seems to assume accomplishment. More accurately the statement should be "What then is freedom? The opportunity to live as one wishes."


Maybe Cicero was figuring freedom included owning slaves if one wished since he also said, " Unbecoming to a gentleman, too, and vulgar are the means of livelihood of all hired workmen whom we pay for mere manual labour, not for artistic skill; for in their case the very wage they receive is a pledge of their slavery. and " Too much liberty leads both men and nations to slavery."

But in his defense, he also said, "To some extent I liken slavery to death."
