Liberty is freedom from the imposition of others. Liberties can be political, civil, or economic. It is about the ability to express our free will. To pursue our happiness, we need to protect and design for both life and liberty.
There are 27 million people enslaved today around the world. There are 2.5 million men, women, and children in forced labor. If we intend to get better outcomes in the area of liberty, then this is where we must start.
