Liberty. What does Liberty mean? To most people it is just a word in the Pledge of Allegiance. …with Liberty and Justice for All. Everyone likes to focus on the word Justice. You hear it and see it all the time in the news and in popular drama. What about the word Liberty? People are ignoring and giving up their fundamental right to their freedom of choice.

When one thinks of Liberty what’s the first thing that comes to mind? For most it is the image of the Statue of Liberty. Which is O.K. When it was given to us by France, it stood for what it meant. Now it is merely an icon.  Heck, no one is even allowed inside anymore.   Do many people even know the definition of the term Liberty? People may look it up in a dictionary or online. They will get several definitions, but they should all have THE one and only, simple definition in common.


Here is Some History on Liberty:


Liberty is a concept of political philosophy and identifies the condition in which an individual has the right to act according to his or her own will. In feudal times, a liberty was an area of allodial land in which regalian rights had been waived.

Individualist and classical liberal conceptions of liberty relate to the freedom of the individual from outside compulsion or coercion.

John Stuart Mill, in his work, On Liberty, was the first to recognize the difference between liberty as the freedom to act and liberty as the absence of coercion.
