John Stuart Mill and the Dangers to Liberty

Richard Ebeling emails:

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of John Stuart Mill's famous essay "On Liberty."

With the growth of Big Government over even more of our life, I thought it would be useful to remember and reflect on Mill's warnings of the various types of tyranny that can threaten our freedom, and to emphasize more than Mill did the importance of the recognition and protection of private property rights if liberty is to be preserved.

My article, "John Stuart Mill and the Dangers to Liberty," may be accessed on a new blog hosted by Northwood University called the "defense of capitalism." .
Ebeling is very careful and thorough observer. It is all here, the nature of truth, the nature of tyranny, and then Ebeling goes beyond Mill to discuss the importance of private property.

This is a core piece for anyone that is trying to understand the importance of liberty. The link to the piece is here
