“In certain ways the term freedom has changed. My parents were able to walk around freely at night, whereas nowadays we don’t have the same freedom. But our parents had to follow what their parents said or go into the army and I don’t have that. So what freedom affects has changed. I wish I could be more safe, like in other countries like Spain, where you can walk around until four in the morning.”
