Freedom versus Security

Here is a page from 'My Language', the series of books used in Greek schools until a few years ago for teaching Greek:
The story tells of a lean and hugry wolf who comes down to the town and meets a happy healthy dog, who tells him he lives with humans, who look after him well, feeding him every day. He kindly invites the wolf to come and stay and share in this largesse. The wolf notices the collar and lead, thinks a moment, and says 'Better free and hungry than full and tied up,' and goes back up into the mountains.
I have a special reason for posting this just now; I may explain it in a further post.
