Supposedly law-neutral

Hello,
might someone explain me what is meant by the expression „...supposedly law-neutral Term of freedom…“. I understand this notion of neutrality as law shall be neutral vis-à-vis freedom. Thus to say that he doesn't influence freedom. What do you think?
Greetings

@Marcello1996,
When “supposedly” is in front of a statement, it can mean without truth, or regarded as truth, but without actual knowledge.

She was supposedly his first love, but everyone knew how he felt about Mary.

Supposely he had a fortune, and was going to invest in another business.

It’s difficult to know what your phrase means without some context. Can you write the entire sentence?

@PUNKEY,
Hey,
Thanks for your answer. Of course I can post the whole sentence: At the same time this libertarian term of freedom typically is used as supposedly law-neutral term that suggests freedom as the absence of enforcement. So you see that the term of freedom has its roots in a libertarian view. Thus to say that the freedom of the individual person has its roots in the personal property rights. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarianism#Right-libertarianism offers a brief description of the concept.
