    And this is related to communitarian freedom ... how?

Laws and international treaties have to do with other people.  They are
not individualistic in that sense.  When you make a decision involving
others, the consequences don't involve you alone.  A community has other
people in it.

You may prefer your community to be more individualistic -- I do with my
own -- but regardless, a community as other people in it.  It is a
matter of degree.
