Could anyone answer the question I have entered in the title section of the post?
I mean that 'freedom' is a complex word. The adjective 'free' according to a dictionary means 'not under the control or in the power of another; able to act or be done as one wishes', whereas the 'dom' perhaps means 'domein'--'an area of territory owned or controlled by a ruler or government.' Thus, for example, historically, 'freedom' could bear a social meaning, suggesting a territory where a person becomes free from governance he sees as injustice, unfair etc (in the medieval France such territories were cities). Generally, I think that the historically original meaning of a word still resonates with its modern usage, and in this sense, it is still present in the modern usage as well.
So, I would ask especially native speakers, is the presence of such meaning somehow traceable in the modern usage of the word freedom?
Next, the above 'analysis' is still an assumption; the restoration of an original meaning seems a work much harder than merely looking words up in dictionaries for their modern usage.
Then, perhaps someone suggests an idea on that matter or some acknowledged analysis of the etymology of the word, if any?
I also noticed in 'similar questions' "Liberty" versus "freedom", but it is on a slightly different matter.
