A lot of talk on the forum about Freedom and I thought I’d post on how the legal system interprets Freedom as well as ask the question: Will ProjectSAFE change our understanding of Freedom?
I was going to post as a FAQ for reference, but there is some interest to discuss in open forum.
What is FREEDOM?
- The state of being free; liberty; self-determination; absence of
restraint; the opposite of slavery.
- The power of acting, in the character of a moral personality,
according to the dictates of the will, without other check,
hindrance, or prohibition than such as may be imposed by just
and necessary laws and the duties of social life.
- The prevalence, in the government and constitution of a country,
of such a system of laws and institutions as secure civil liberty to the individual citizen.
What is SELF-DETERMINATION?
The fundamental right of every person to freely decide on their own political status and to pursue their own choice of economic, cultural and social development. It is embodied in the US Declaration of Independence in 1776.
What is CIVIL LIBERTY?
the political freedom that is enjoyed by members of society that restrains its people as far as is necessary to maintain the general welfare of everyone.
