“Cognitive liberty,” Mike Margolies said on the Amtrak to San Francisco, “is freedom over one’s own consciousness.”
Cognitive liberty, he told me, is the cornerstone of individual freedom. It’s the freedom to think, intend, imagine, wish and act as you please. All other freedoms extend out of this freedom to own your own consciousness. All freedoms are informed by your individual freedom to choose.
It’s a term, though, I’ve only recently discovered via Mike, the Director of Expansion at Psymposia magazine.
