It is my Right to engage in any activity as I see fit, in
any manner of my own choice
, so long as that activity does not
infringe upon another Citizen's person,
property, Liberty, or enjoyment thereof. I do not need permission
from anyone to engage in any activity that does not infringe upon
another Citizen's Rights.
Yes. It is that simple.
liberty I would say
that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action
according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed
according to our will within
limits drawn around us by the equal rights
- Thomas Jefferson
| What is Liberty?
Actually, what is the
political struggle that we witness? It is the
instinctive struggle of all people toward liberty. And what is this
liberty, whose very name makes the heart beat faster and shakes the
world? Is it not the union of all
liberties - liberty of conscience,
of education, of association, of the press, of travel, of labor, of trade?
In short, is not liberty the freedom
of every person to make full use
of his faculties, so
long as he does not harm other persons while doing
so? Is not liberty the
destruction of all despotism - including, of
course, legal despotism? Finally, is not liberty the restricting of the
law only to its rational sphere of organizing the right of the
individual to lawful self-defense; of punishing injustice?
- Frederic Bastiat
