doesn't use his freedom? To me it seems that he believes, that freedom is
something that needs to be preserved, and not something that only contains
the value it is given through an engagement in one's own existence.
Fx that he as a child decides to become free, and thereby doesn't accept the
fact that he is already free. I think that it is the realisation of having
wasted his life by not acting, which is the morale of 'Age of reason'.
