You can consider this one,

"Sleep teaching was actually prohibited in England. There was something called liberalism. Parliament, if you know what that was, passed a law against it. The records survive. Speeches about liberty of the subject. Liberty to be inefficient and miserable. Freedom to be a round peg in a square hole." (3.138)

Mustapha describes this liberalist sentiment with ridicule – why would anyone want to be inefficient and miserable? But this is exactly the freedom John will later claim – the freedom to be unhappy.
