The concept of having freedoms makes sense only in contradistinction to being obliged to do something or other, and only if the control that is in fact exercised can be compared relevantly with this particular instance of the lack of control. A freedom is so to sayan empty slot in the sense in which linguists use this expression. It would be ridiculous to say that the rule: "Go to the confession at least once a year" leaves one free to watch television after dinner. A rule can be regarded as leaving us our freedom only insofar as it could conceivably restrict it, or insofar as it could support or coexist in one code with a rule that would restrict it.

Nonetheless those who live in a society do not usually view this imposing array with dismay, indeed they are mostly unaware of its existence. Codes are developed between individuals that have sympathetic "rapport" with each other - if they didn't they would not begin to cooperate. As the cooperation develops so does a common outlook. e. they tend to think on the same lines even if their ideas differ.
