Liberty .....and Tyranny



Regardless of our political leanings we are all proud Americans and we all say we want liberty.  However, based on our political viewpoints we have diferent ideas of what liberty really is.  

I have just started reading Liberty and Tyranny, by Mark Levin.  Here is a great quote from the back cover of the book...

    "We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men’s labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatable things, called by the same name—liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatable names—liberty and tyranny."

Think about it for a while....

Liberty along with the word Free can mean different things at different times according to the context.

Bob,

To me liberty means no foreign power ruling over us and no government ruling over us including our own.

Bob - I think that Lincoln put it succinctly. I have read the book, I think Levin makes some excellent points, but there were a few things in it that I disagree with. (I would have to reread to let you know what they were).

Bob: Seems to me Lincoln is talking about slavery.
