Wasn't freedom the most important thing there is in a country? Many fought for it.

Freedom was the overall theme. I thought it was funny that the half-human, half-robot was supposed to choose what he wants to do. Clearly, he's literally not wired that way. I think he wanted Kelly to have freedom, too. That's why he took her. Alas, it wasn't meant to be for her.

In a dystopian future where everything is excessively controlled, freedom, no matter how small, comes at a premium. Agent Silver and Rex's independence seems like reality to them, but it isn't true freedom until one can freely enjoy it.

I believe so. The novel centers around freedom. Franklin, Rex, Sliver, and Kelly all experience some type of freedom throughout the novel and it seems to help each one grow.
