I love that sentence humz. I suppose you are a woman.
Thanks for the comment.

Is it correct grammatically?

There are a few things wrong with it, I'm afraid.

The simplest fix would be: "Freedom is for THEY who UNDERSTAND their rights along with THEIR duties". The word following "for" should be in accusative case. You don't need the "as well", because you've already said that with "along with".

You could also use THOSE instead of THEY. That would make it plural, but I think think the singular version has more impact.

>Freedom is for THEY who UNDERSTAND their rights along with THEIR duties

Sorry, but I don't understand why it should be THEY, not THEM.
With my limited grammar knowledge, I think
"who UNDERSTAND their rights along with THEIR duties" is a relative
clause. The sentence will still be grammatically correct if the relative
clause is omitted. If so, it becomes

"Freedom is for THEY"

which is quite obviously wrong.
Could you explain why THEY should be used?
Thanks.
Jeez, you're right. I was wrong. Whoops! I think I got caught up in how it sounded.

Hi! Tia,

I would write it this way.

"Freedom is only for them/those who understand their duties as well as their right."
