What is Liberty?

What is LIBERTY? It means FREEDOM. What kind of freedom? Freedom for all to do whatever they wish within the framework of the law. When may one do whatever one wishes? When one possesses a million. Does freedom provide each man with a million? A man without a million is not one who does whatever he pleases, but who is treated any way it pleases others. There is no evidence of fraternity, because what has emerged is the personal principle that of separateness enhanced by self-preservation and self-activity with one’s I.
