Freedom vs. Force - The Individual and the State
You come close to playing a dangerous semantic game. There is no such thing as absolute freedom. To buy the idea of absolute freedom means allowing people to take advantage of others, to treat them with a lack of dignity and respect. To do so denies the basic tenets of democracy. Yes, we need to act and make choices within the bounds of morality and rationality, but we should never create a governmental situation which allows and encourages the debasing and exploitation of others. Your posts lean toward self-serving libertarianism.
