In these times of forced confinement for many, due to the decisions taken by numerous governments around the globe in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, here are a few quotes about Liberty.
These quotes are the ones you find at the beginning of the Adventures of Jonathan Gullible by Ken Schooland. (Link to his website). As I am about to read this to my children as I indicated last week, I thought it might actually be worth it to just ponder these great quotes for a second. Isn’t this what it’s all about anyways?
“Every man has freedom to do all that he wills, provided he infringes not on the equal freedom of others.”Herbert Spencer (1820 – 1903)
“In most of history, societies have not been free. It’s a very rare society that is free. The default condition of human societies is tyranny.”Michael Dvorak (born 1933)
“The only freedom which deserves the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it.”John Stuart Mill (1806 – 1873)
