Liberty-- mischaracterized by its enemies

Enemies of liberty-- and of all the various parts of liberty-- mischaracterize it. Every time. They have to. It's their only path forward. They can't be honest in their criticism or they have no point to argue about.

Frequently, their argument is actually against freedom, which can be bad depending on what you want to do. So they argue against unlimited freedom, carefully avoiding the topic of liberty, which is freedom tempered with responsibility, since this lets the air out of their scary balloon.

Even if you exercise your liberty to the fullest, you will not violate any other person's rights. Not ever. Any fear-mongering to the contrary is based on mischaracterizing liberty. Perhaps out of ignorance, but perhaps out of a desire to enslave you. They look the same.

Writing to promote liberty is my job.
YOU get to decide if I get paid.
I hope I add something you find valuable enough to support.
