    Not true, of course. Everyone wants liberty, whether his name is Mr J. Smith or Mr J. Stalin. And everyone wants security too.

    It is not possible to have security without liberty!

    Menchen got upside down occasionally, but not this time. We might substitute certainty for security and read it better that way.

    And we might wish to distinguish liberty from freedom. Criminals live in perfect freedom, until they are caught.

    Liberty cannot be overestimated, but properly understood it is also not so attractive to people as when it is in a song. One of your boys put it very well–Liberty demands responsibility. That is why men dread it.

    Cherry,

    Yes it is but only by the state giving up its role and giving us more liberty. The problem is the state thinks it can take liberty and give security. Like everything else they do they are wrong.

    Lord T,

    The problem with the state (always and wherever) is that it likes to take control which means the death of liberty.

    So yes the state has to give up it’s power, but it won’t because of the type of people who head the state. They seek power and will not give it up.
