“Liberty is the child of intelligence.” (Robert Ingersoll, 1877)
A mind that can’t grasp the concept of liberty wanders in a dark asylum of illusions.
The American Constitution wasn’t written to generate passive benefits. It wasn’t a philosophic food-stamp operation.
Originally, the aim of public education was to impart an understanding of what it meant to participate in a new Republic, as a citizen, in a great experiment.
And that experiment was liberty. With responsibility.
My comment – Personally I like this better: “And that experiment was freedom with Responsibility“.
Distinguishing between liberty and freedom!
So Liberty = “Freedom with Responsibility“.
