I've been reading and making notes on this topic, in order to answer the 15 maker question (Edexcel A2 Gov & Politics paper) 'Distinguish between Positive and Negative Freedom'

My teacher has told me a typical answer for a 15 mark question like this should be about 2 pages on the answer booklet in the exam.

However the points I have come up with are sort of confusing to understand and I don't know how I could develop this into a 2 page answer.

If anyone understands this topic well, I would appreciate a summary of both Negative and Positive Freedom.

Negative: the absence of external restrictions on the individual

Positive: the ability of an individual to achieve personal fulfilment

An example:

Banning certain drugs breaches negative freedom (as it places a restriction on an individual), but is compatible with positive freedom (as banning harmful drugs may prevent an individual from becoming addicted, allowing them to live a better life and achieve self-fulfilment)
