“The very notion of true liberty is often difficult to grasp because it tends to be measured according to subjective values that can differ widely between individuals and cultures. When it is appealed to, it often seems connected to the idea of personal freedom. One might argue that freedom itself can never be absolute as the inevitable result of unfettered or unconstrained behaviour will be one individual trespassing on the liberty of another. However, within a framework of laws and ethical boundaries, a maximum practical level of freedom can be obtained. In fact, freedom without such boundaries is no freedom at all, at least it is not freedom in any meaningful sense.”
