Liberty and Freedom

Both words translate into Spanish as "Libertad".

Yet, when you have these two in English, even if synonyms, they give a nice emphasis to the concept... without being redundant, nor creating a pleonasm.

One option to translate it into Spanish is just use "libertad" but that lacks the mentioned emphasis.

Another is "libre albedrío y libertad", which may be a valid option, even if a bit highbrow...

Any other ideas?

(This subject of "freedom" reminds me the Orwell book 1984... and the whole subject of "propaganda" by means of re-defining words...) But that's another subject... as Big-Brother may be watching...
