    Default not even especially

    Hello, teachers.

    I've found the following:

    1. Freedom of the mind requires not only, or not even especially, the absence of legal constraints but the presence of alternative thoughts.

    What does the phrase "not even especially" mean in this case?

    Thank you very much in advance for your help on this.

    IMO, it means that "the absence of legal constraints..." is not even one of the main requirements for freedom of the mind.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
