How important is freedom to human nature

The story of the movie room 2015 is not complicated, but the political metaphor behind the story is interesting to think about. “Room” is actually a non free space circled in the free world, but this space is used by the director of this film to observe the importance of freedom to people, and the object of observation is the 5-year-old boy Jack in this story. Jack’s mother Joey newsam was tricked into a room by a liar seven years ago. The room had only a skylight and the door could only be opened by a liar. In fact, the room became Joey’s prison. Joey gave birth to his son Jack during his imprisonment; Jack had never seen the outside world until he was five years old. This special growth environment makes Jack the best person to observe, because compared with the people in the outside world, he is like a pure white board, and the observed human nature should be the most natural and credible. So how does Jack, 5, react to the free world?

I’ve never seen freedom. I’m afraid of freedom. In this room, Joey was a visitor from the free world. Once imprisoned, of course, she wanted to get out of her cage all the time. Inspired by her son’s reading the story of Alice in Wonderland, she planned to stop waiting. She wanted to raise a self-help plan, but she needed help. However, her son Jack had been living in the fairy tale world she had woven for him. She didn’t even know that there was another world outside the room separated by a wall. Therefore, she changed her previous strategy of educating her son and told him that the world outside the wall was wonderful, so as to guide her son’s longing for the outside free world. However, what is the result? When she told the truth of the free world, her son’s answer was “impossible”, and even said that she was a “liar”; When she said that her son was 5 years old and should help her change her current living situation, her son said, “I want to go back to 4 years old”; When she told her son about her tragic abduction experience, his son roared that the story was too boring; When she said it was a smelly room, her son didn’t agree at all. Helpless, she can only engage in a “cold war” with her son. This result makes us think of something easily! When people who understand freedom tell people who never know what freedom is, it is not so much to tell the “truth” as to cause “panic”, because human nature has an instinctive fear of the unknown world; If the act of telling the “truth” is forced too hard, it is easy to be regarded as a “liar” act, because people have instinctive doubts about what they can’t see or touch; Between “not getting” and “having”, people will cherish the latter more. Therefore, we understand why people sometimes fear freedom.

Freedom shows its importance in comparison. After Jack and his mother escaped from the “room” and entered the free world, they mentioned the “room” many times in the process of communicating with others, and even asked to go back and have a look, while his mother Joey had long been secretive about that place. We can understand Joey’s reaction very well, because “room” is a nightmare of her life; But does Jack’s reaction show that the man who suddenly gained freedom still misses the world that once made him not free? Obviously not. Because before that, he never felt not free, and he was well protected by his mother. There were no painful memories of him. On the contrary, there was the place where he felt most about happiness and maternal love. Jack wanted to go back to the “room” and have a look. It was the same emotion as we wanted to go back to his hometown. His reaction just showed that his mental development was normal. But after returning to the “room”, it was obvious that Jack began to realize the importance of freedom. He felt the “room” shrinking and didn’t want to close the door of the room. The change of Jack’s attitude towards the room shows that he feels the benefits of “freedom”. Even if he is full of feelings for everything in the “room”, he will not give up the good of the external free world. Although it is a child’s story, it reflects that the characteristics of human nature are universal, and it provides experimental first-hand information for us to think about some problems of freedom. Therefore, we finally understand: in today’s world, why are the rulers of some countries so afraid of the people’s understanding of freedom, so afraid of the spread of things in the free world at home, because he can be called the boss when the door is closed. Once the door is opened, he is nothing. So far, you may also believe the political metaphor of this film. It is clearly telling some people who are interested in spreading the concept of freedom how to spread freedom correctly.


Freedom is not the most urgent human need. Obviously, this film is not only to let people understand the importance of freedom, but also to tell us that freedom is never the most urgent need in human nature. This can be seen from the plot of “freedom vs. maternal love” shown in the film. When Joey was interviewed, the host asked her if she thought about sending Jack away after Jack was born, so that Jack would be “free”. It can be imagined that in the eyes of Americans who greatly advocate freedom, freedom is rooted in their bones. Without freedom, there will be nothing. Without freedom, little Jack can’t “have a childhood”. Although Joey answered “but he has me”, she meant that for children, maternal love is more important than freedom, but for the host’s next question, “but is that the best for him?” It made Joey feel painful, and it was even certain that the stimulation was the main reason for her attempt to commit suicide. In this country that advocates freedom, the question of the host representing most ideas is actually a kind of condemnation: Although no one denies the importance of maternal love, a mother who does not think about children’s freedom is selfish. Obviously, the public believes that “freedom is more important than maternal love!”, And her desire to commit suicide also proves that she agrees with this more or less. In fact, it’s hard for outsiders to judge which is right or wrong in the dispute between Joey and the public, but considering the behavior of the client Jack after returning to the free world, we seem to be able to stand on Joey’s side. For example, Jack quickly adapted to the free world. He even said that he knew everything after the age of 5, indicating that his “plasticity was not affected”; Grandma twisted his hair and washed his hair. He knew gratitude, which showed that his emotional development was very normal; The children find him to play, and he can play quickly, which shows that he has no obstacles in communication. Importantly, when his mother attempted suicide and apologized to him, “I’m not a good mother”, he replied, “but you’re a mother!”, This seems to show that for children, maternal love is far more important than freedom; Moreover, the concept of freedom is external. Apart from this, human nature must be more inclined to “love”.
