It may appear as though freedom and discipline are opposing concepts, and yet, they are also harmonizing. The purpose of a country’s defensive forces is to defend the nation’s freedom, and yet, there is no freedom in defense. Soldiers lead a regimented life, bound by rules and regulations, when told to march, they march in tandem – left, right, left. Even their steps are calculated; their rhythm defined for them. And yet, discipline is what protects the freedom of a nation, of a belief system, of democracy in total.
