Fear of Freedom

I was reading an article, written from a Christian Perspective about what's going on right now in Egypt.  The author referred back to what happened when God brought the Isrealites out of Egypt.  Remember they made the God's for themselves.  Well the author of the article makes the following comment:

They were free, but their fear of freedom kept driving them back to tyranny, if only the tyranny of their own wills.

This statement made me think about how society responds to freedom on an individual level.  When you meet a person that seems to "free" if you will, does it make you nervous?  Does it make you judge them?  Do they appear unstable? Do they appear irresponsible?  Do they appear to not be living in  the "real world"?
