Liberty- The Definition

Liberty is the freedom to exercise your rights.
Liberty is freedom tempered by responsibility.
Therefore, there can be no such thing as "too much" liberty.

Thomas Jefferson said the same thing: "Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.

He went on to say "I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
