An entertaining presentation about the Philosophy of Liberty. A Spanish-language version can also be viewed under my Other Submissions.

Very good!

I like that such an important message was put so simply and easy to understand. If only everybody understood what Liberty was really about, maybe the world today would be a very different place. Great job!

certainly a substantial submission, it just lacks justification of the provided theses all along, although some may think that the propositions dealt with are self-evident, they arent at a closer look. the one attempt to actually argue i can recall may be considered a bit unsound because logically it cant be admissible to state a reason thats not already shown to be consistent: if you say your explanations describe a model of life thats "more ethical" i suppose you use that attribute as synonymic with virtuous, at least i dont know how to separate them according to a definition cause one cant succeed in trying to define one of those terms, at least that much is secured regarding their meaning- anyways you say that the idea of mutual consent is the one to choose to acquire a society based on virtue, so i think it doesnt make sense to justify the moral value of your ideas at hand of that moral value itself. moreover a truly democratic and humanitarian society cant be the most practical one if practical is understood as well-functioning and purposeful, which i also claim without further reasons cause id probably be seen as someone who advocates oppression (to give a hint) O.O
