freedom is not the only thing necessary to obtain happiness because we need health.

I humbly accept the challenge that Freedom is the only necessity to obtain happiness

"Freedom" as defined by the absence of necessity external control, interference, regulation, or constraint in choice or action.

"freedom is not the only thing necessary to obtain happiness because we need health."

Ill start with the first rebuttal already. The Freedom of thought is the only necessity because health isn't a measure of happiness, though you may argue on situations as you may be easy to tell if one is happy by their physical appearance and body functions, it is not a determining factor to health.

To have Freedom of thought without any constraints to ones being, be it on a personal level of stress to ones self or the freedom from the state to enjoy that freedom is what leads to happiness. When you have free thought you yourself determine your own health.
