THE EQUALITY OF RESTRAINT

“Permit me… to tell You what the freedom is that I love and that to which I think that all men entitled. It is not solitary, unconnected, individual, selfish liberty. As if every man was to regulate the whole of his conduct by his own will. The Liberty I mean is social freedom. It is that state of things in which Liberty is secured by the equality of Restraint; A constitution of things in which the liberty of no one Man and no body of Men and no Number of men can find Means to trespass on the liberty of any Person or any description of Persons in the Society. This kind of Liberty is indeed but another name for Justice, ascertained by wise Laws. And secured by well constructed institutions.”

Edmund Burke 1729-1797 England, Statesman, Parliamentarian, Orator: Historical Age, Age of Reason 1650-1950; Astrological Age, Age of Pisces, 1 AD – 2000; Sun Sign, Capricorn.
