Government can restrict or create freedom. Other forces can do too.
That is true - government can restrict freedom. Sometimes it must; other times it doesn't have to. But IMHO, only government can create freedom, because the chaos of mob rule is anything but free. To wit:

Without government, there can be no laws.
Without laws, there can be no order.
Without order, there can be only chaos.
With chaos, there can be only fear.
With fear, nobody is free.
