Forgive me for agreeing with your sentiments and
only some of the technical information.

I don't accept as scientific the
equal sign between the words freedom, prosperity, human rights, because...

There are some other steps. Specific definitions are required. May freedom be regulated to prevent environmental collapse?
May taxes be collected without your permission
to support schools, road-building etc.?
Will prosperity be considered a long-term or short-term project -- having consequences for the ecology.
May persons use their political teamwork to
abridge the freedoms of persons whose exercise of freedom does not please the team (ie. pornography)? Is it okay to beat up on honkeys?

Freedom must always depend on a framework of values and even some regulation.

A lot of hard work is required to manage as well as participate in these three values.
