What is liberty?
A quick Google search will tell you this:
[…] While even Google’s definition of liberty is fairly free of ambiguity, ask any politician of their definition… any leader of the “free world”… and we doubt it’ll have quite the same flavor.
“More or less every modern politician,” says Paul Rosenberg on Freeman’s Perspective, “talks about ‘freedom’ or ‘liberty.’ Actually, they don’t talk about it as much as they use it as a magic incantation. They go on at length about ‘our free country,’ but if you could get them to define freedom, that definition would be something along the lines of ‘what we have.’
