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



Rated 5 / 5 stars


that was the best most thoroguh logically consistant step by step walkthrough of a philosophy i have ever witnessed. excellent choice of music. The symbol based visuals were perfect for the purpose and message. and the "men in fine hats" part gave me a laugh


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Makes sense?

This flash makes alot of sense, making u realise that the solution to world problems is not to be dealt with from governments or higher powers, it has to be dealt with from the people themselves nice flash i really liked this..

Gracias! I hope this idea, that people have to take personal responsibility for their lives, really catches on.

Strange indeed, coming from an american :)

Although i disagree on several of the basic principles exposed on the animation (for instance i do not stand for the principle of property, i do not believe in such thing as property) i do think its great to encourage masses to cuestion authority and develope a critical sense of reality, very rare these days in the american media (who as we all know are in charge of the exact opposite, i did saw very michel foucaulthish sorta influence
id suggest this, if you sorta redo it or make new ones try makin them more dynamic, that way it would reach a much wider audience (i think that the sort of ppl who´d look at these animation and say "bo-ring, me wants boobies and beer" is the sort of ppl you guys are trying to reach)
anyway, nice work, ther should be more of these on the internet
an argentinan leftist gnome
PS:if you wanna make a spanish version of this i could probably translate it for you

LuxLucre responds:

Thanks! Er, I'm Canadian, in fact, and I HAVE made a Spanish version, thanks to a good Argentinan friend of mine, which you can view on this board, called Filosofía de la Libertad. I also have French and Portuguese finished and a bunch of other languages in the works.

Others might found this a bit dull, but I thought it's OK as simplicity makes clear message.

And for this type of work, Newgrounds should add "Idea" aspect to review rating system. I'll give it full 10 without hesistation.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


A beautiful work of sheer genius. Some people use 10s just because they want to feel nice or something. Others use this score thoughtfully. I prefer the latter, but it's hard to decide on examples to use for the scale (to make rating stuff easier). This movie, though, has become the example I now use for the 10-rating. I will hold up all future flash movies to this to decide if they are even worthy of the same score as "The Philosophy of Liberty," one of the best movies I have seen online. Thank you for your submission, man!
