The potential and passive forms for ichidan verbs are the same. In the following sentence:
I initially read this as, "If you don't know the real meaning of freedom, you should not be given it."
However, I think that it can also be interpreted as, "If you don't know the real meaning of freedom, you should not have the ability to grant it (to others)."
Is this sentence actually ambiguous in meaning, or are there other parts of the sentence or grammar rules that I'm unaware of that make either meaning obviously incorrect?
