What are the limits of freedom?
In the days of our founding fathers freedom was paramount, however it was in the context of a general societal awareness of all being answerable to God for one's behavior. That societal awareness has vanished. It seems that freedom has become license and leaves western society vulnerable to extremist who take advantage of our freedoms to destroy us.
There's no such thing as absolute freedom thus I think freedom is still bounded by rules and the limits are actually not tangible, it lies on our common sense. However, common sense is not common nowadays and it promulgate war and evasiveness all over the nation.
