If Hong Kong is #2 on the list, then freedom is going down in flames.

This list emphasizes economic freedom, which equates to corporate freedom. This has little to do with actual classical liberty.

This is a crap list.

The future looks extremely grim.

There are no more free countries.

No country has religious freedom, free speech, gun rights, or protection from warrantless searches, forfeiture, indefinite detention, torture, or extrajudicial assassination.

You might have slightly more freedom in Ireland or Switzerland, but soon the whole world will look like North Korea.

People in Venezuela, China, Vietnam, and Cuba seem to deal with tyranny by just ignoring it and living their lives, but making plans are difficult because everything is illegal and you can be arrested at anytime.
