    In  western  democracies  most  people  tend  to  assert  they  are  free  individuals  within  society.  Yet,  regardless  of  laws  or  other  sanctions  curbing  people's  behaviour,  this  freedom  is  not  absolute.  In  most  instances  the  freedoms  afforded  to  people  in  western  democracies  are  conditional  upon  them  acting  or  behaving  in  line  with  others'  general  propensities.  If  an  individual  really  did  decide  to  go  against  the  grain  or  behave  in  a manner  completely  at  odds  with  everyone  else,  they  would  soon  find  themselves  brought  back  into  line  in  one  way  or  another.  However,  the  illusion  of  freedom  sits  well  with  a  significant  number  of  people  whose  behaviour  never  goes  beyond  what  others  expect  and  which  compliment  or  endorse  society's  preferred  needs  as  a  whole.
