Eh. No one has liberty. We are all slaves to reality. A reality created by God? or Chance? I don't know. I do know you can choose to starve to death. However, reality will impose pain. It will force a cost on you.
As for the interactions of society. It is all rock paper scissors. If we all agree to be paper and not impose upon each other. Eventually someone will choose scissors and cut us all down. So, we give someone the authority of rock.
The tough question is then who do we label as rock paper and scissors. Perhaps American citizens are paper, Al Qaeda are scissors, and the American Soldiers are rock.
In any case, we are all slaves to reality. We are all going to die at the hands of reality.
If you can steal a bit of joy between birth and death. Good for you...
