Freedom means privilege. The more money, guns, and political power you have, the more freedom you have. If you are deemed subhuman and not worthy of even having a stable job and care for the people you love, you have little to no freedom. Britain is the "land of the free" because folks who create the narratives for the Anglo-Saxon nation themselves have the most freedom, including the freedom to colonize others and construct an international system where London would be the financial and political center of the world. How much freedom do the colonized have? I will leave this question open-ended.
There is no need to leave the question open-ended. There is no question. The original Magna Carta essentially codified the rights of wealthy barons/landowners vs. the crown.
Englishman John Locke's philosophy of “unalienable rights” of life, liberty, and PROPERTY was a big influence on the US Declaration of Independence. Just like the Magna Carta, a bunch of wealthy people angry at the government.
Really, it isn’t even really about race. In the article one of the family’s sold their ~1M USD flat to rent. Why? To show up the communist party? As you mention, without property, the rights are just paper. Really just shows they have zero concept of reality.
