Freedom vs. Liberty

I liked the distinction you made, that Liberty is what's left after removing from Freedom those actions which damage others.

It reminds me of the game Go, in which the places around a stone are called "liberties", as in, those are the places that you can place additional stones to extend the group. Once a stone (or group)'s liberties are captured, the stone (or group) is removed. When you have no liberty, you are crushed. I really like the lessons of that game, and I'm by far no expert.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. - Fully Informed Jury Association - Jin Shin Jyutsu (energy healing)
