The Conceptual Preconditions of Freedom


Paul's picture

A fairly conventional view; e.g., "There are many other concepts that play a role in politics, that are currently misconceived or otherwise detached from reality, and that people need to understand if they are to support a free society. A short list would include “equality,” “power,” “coercion,” “capitalism,” and that staple of high school civics, the difference between a democracy and a republic."

Yeah, the one is mob rule, the other a disguised oligarchy.
