Episode 20170220 - On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Chapter 5


Chapter 5, The final (hour-long) Chapter.  Mill provides some sample applications for the principles from previous chapters.  And points out that though society could restrict liberty when others experience loss, that doesn't mean they always should.  Some losses aren't as important as preserving Liberty.

Hope you enjoyed the book.

Episode 20170216 - On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Chapter 4


Chapter 4 - Aren't there limits on liberty and individuality?  Certainly.  But there are also limits on society, and both are to preserve.  And sometimes, liberty has costs.  But liberty is worth the costs.

Episode 20170213 - On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Chapter 3 Part 2


 Chapter 3 Part 2 - It's important to be an individual, and to allow others to be individuals in thought and act.  And it's important to preserve that liberty, even for individuals you don't like.  Because they come up with good new ways of doing things.  Bad new ways, too -- and then you learn what doesn't work...  Something like that.  Mill explains it better, just listen!

Episode 20170209 - On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Chapter 3 Part 1


Chapter 3 Part 1 - Mill speaks about the importance of not just thinking and talking but acting as an individual (as long as you don't harm others) and preserving the right to act as an individual.  One of the strengths of his arguments is that though he might well not approve of some of our new sorts of individuality, his truths about liberty are still true.  And will drive some folks crazy.  Which is why I do this!
