Holy Father: Freedom is Only in the Good

"In human cooperation freedom does not happen without solidarity.  Whatever is done at the expense of the other is not freedom, rather a culpable act, which impairs the other and also myself. I can only truly develop in freely for myself, if I employ my powers for the good of my fellow man.  That isn't only applicable to the private life, but also for society."

From a speech by Benedict XVI at Bellevue Palace in Berlin.
