"Abe wondered about freedom. Once when he'd put a cricket in a cage, it stopped moving and chirping. But when Abe let it go, it jumped quickly through the grass and started singing again.

But people don't live in cages, though Abe, so how could they not be free? Why would they need to fight for freedom?"
