[Quote No.42381] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Can government become too paternalistic and intrusive in the behavior and therefore the liberty of individuals who have not harmed the physical person or private property of others, even though other's feelings may be hurt?] Yes, if we harm ourselves it may emotionally harm others. That's unfortunate, but not grounds for putting us in jail. If it were, every time we stopped dating person A in order to date person B, we would run the risk of going to jail for hurting person A. If person B were hurt by our being put in jail, person A could be put in jail for hurting person B. This would, of course, hurt person A's mother, who would see to it that person B would go to jail. Eventually, we'd all be in jail.... Roughly half of the arrests and court cases in the United States each year [in 1996] involve consensual crimes — actions that are against the law, but directly harm no one's person or property except, possibly, the 'criminal's.' More than 750,000 people are in jail right now because of something they did, something that did not physically harm the person or property of another. In addition, more than 3,000,000 people are on parole or probation for consensual crimes. Further, more than 4,000,000 people are arrested each year for doing something that hurts no one but, potentially, themselves." - Peter McWilliams
Quote from 'Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do', 1996.

"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself, so long as it doesn't hurt the physical person or property of another:] 'To Be Uniquely You or Not to Be Uniquely You? That is the Question' ...[This is] one of the most important dilemmas we all confront in our journey through life. Do we ignore or deny important aspects of ourselves in order to win the acceptance and approval of others? Or do we risk ridicule and rejection by being who we truly are, especially when we differ in important ways from most of our peers? ...When people deny who they truly are in order to fit in [and avoid peer pressure and even physical or emotional bullying], they take what seems like the safer course, but they run the risk that they will never stand out - in their own eyes or in the eyes of the world [or live up to their full potential for happiness or achievement for the the good of themselves or the world]." - Dr. Mardy Grothe

[Quote No.42410] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself:] Most religions have an equivalent expression to the Christian exhortation, 'Treat others as you would like to be treated', which forms the foundation for an ideal, altruistic, social, ethical-moral code of behaviour. This dictum, often called The Golden Rule, is a great way to increase empathy and thereby envision an ideal way to respond to another in any given situation. Unfortunately it, on its own, is too imprecise to be the foundation of a consistent legal system and therefore an even more basic rule derived from it that could be used as the minimum acceptable code of social behaviour, as a 'social contract', would be useful. For those people and in those countries that believe in each individual's unalienable human right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that foundational rule could perhaps be expressed as 'individuals and groups can be, do or have anything they like so long as it does not involve, initiating force, coercion or fraud, hurting another's physical person or property (as an extension of each individual's physical personhood through their creativity, effort and time)'. Even though there are many more laws than an individual could know, the law says that 'ignorance is no excuse' but this foundational principle would help people anticipate potential legal and gross moral transgressions and therefore better avoid them and their consequences of making life more difficult than it has to be in society for themselves and others. This of course would be the minimum acceptable behaviour but it wouldn't stop people from then choosing to follow the even higher moral code of The Golden Rule." - Ben O'Grady

"...the Universal Ethic...Liberty or individual freedom is the prohibition of acts which coercively harm others and no restrictions on other acts, those which are peaceful [where no force is used or threatened] and honest [where no fraud is used]." - Fred Emanuel Foldvary

His research interests include ethics, governance, land economics and public finance.

[Quote No.42444] Need Area: Friends > General
"[The Universal Ethic:] The state of nature has a law of nature to govern it which obliges everyone; and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind who will but consult it that, being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions ... " - John Locke
(1632 – 1704), English philosopher and physician regarded as one of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers and widely known as the Father of Classical Liberalism. Considered one of the first of the British empiricists, following the tradition of Francis Bacon, he is equally important to social contract theory. His work had a great impact upon the development of epistemology and political philosophy. His writings influenced Voltaire and Rousseau, many Scottish Enlightenment thinkers, as well as the American revolutionaries. His contributions to classical republicanism and liberal theory are reflected in the United States Declaration of Independence. This quote is his summary of the universal ethic in his 'Second Treatise'.

[Quote No.42460] Need Area: Friends > General
"Classical Liberalism... is that all individuals have the same natural inalienable right to autonomy and therefore require that each individual refrain from aggressing against every other individual. That is, each individual must allow every other individual the liberty [freedom] to rule over himself. More specifically, to 'allow' is to refrain from using aggression [force or the threat of force] or fraud to deprive another person the liberty of exercising absolute control over himself and his property." - Anonymous

"But I confess that many of the socialistic views [of society, government, unions, etc] that I have come across seem to me to be tainted with ideas of authority, if not of actual compulsion. Of course, authority and compulsion are out of the question. All association must be quite voluntary [freedom of association]. It is only in voluntary associations that man is fine." - Oscar Wilde

[Quote No.42478] Need Area: Friends > General
"It is to be noted also that Individualism does not come to man with any sickly cant about duty, which merely means doing what other people want because they want it; or any hideous cant about self-sacrifice, which is merely a survival of savage mutilation. In fact, it does not come to man with any claims upon him at all. It comes naturally and inevitably out of man. It is the point to which all development tends. It is the differentiation to which all organisms grow. It is the perfection that is inherent in every mode of life, and towards which every mode of life quickens. And so Individualism exercises no compulsion over man. On the contrary, it says to man that he should suffer no compulsion to be exercised over him." - Oscar Wilde

[Quote No.42480] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself, so long as it doesn't hurt the physical person or property of another:] ...a man is called selfish if he lives in the manner that seems to him most suitable for the full realisation of his own personality; if, in fact, the primary aim of his life is self-development. But this is the way in which everyone should live. Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live. And unselfishness is letting other people’s lives alone, not interfering with them. Selfishness always aims at creating around it an absolute uniformity of type. Unselfishness recognises infinite variety of type as a delightful thing, accepts it, acquiesces in it, enjoys it. It is not selfish to think for oneself. A man who does not think for himself does not think at all. It is grossly selfish to require of ones neighbour that he should think in the same way, and hold the same opinions. Why should he? If he can think, he will probably think differently. If he cannot think, it is monstrous to require thought of any kind from him. A red rose is not selfish because it wants to be a red rose. It would be horribly selfish if it wanted all the other flowers in the garden to be both red and roses. Under Individualism people will be quite natural and absolutely unselfish, and will know the meanings of the words, and realise them in their free, beautiful lives. Nor will men be egotistic as they are now. For the egotist is he who makes claims upon others, and the Individualist will not desire to do that. It will not give him pleasure. When man has realised Individualism, he will also realise sympathy [and empathy] and exercise it freely and spontaneously. Up to the present man has hardly cultivated sympathy [and empathy] at all. He has merely sympathy [and empathy] with pain, and sympathy [and empathy] with pain is not the highest form of sympathy [and empathy]. All sympathy [and empathy] is fine, but sympathy [and empathy] with suffering is the least fine mode. It is tainted with egotism. It is apt to become morbid. There is in it a certain element of terror for our own safety. We become afraid that we ourselves might be as the leper or as the blind, and that no man would have care of us. It is curiously limiting, too. One should sympathise [and empathise] with the entirety of life, not with life’s sores and maladies merely, but with life’s joy and beauty and energy and health and freedom. The wider sympathy [and empathy] is, of course, the more difficult. It requires more unselfishness. Anybody can sympathise [and empathise] with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature — it requires, in fact, the nature of a true Individualist — to sympathise [and empathise] with a friend’s success. In the modern stress of competition and struggle for place, such sympathy [and empathy] is naturally rare, and is also very much stifled by the immoral ideal of uniformity of type and conformity to rule which is so prevalent everywhere...

[Quote No.42485] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Interference with another person's unalienable human right to freedom, according to John Stuart Mill, is only justified by what he called the 'The Harm Principle' as described in the following quote:]...the sole end for which mankind are warranted, individually or collectively, in interfering with the liberty of action of any of their number, is self-protection. That the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilised community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not sufficient warrant. He cannot rightfully be compelled to do or forbear because it will be better for him to do so, because it will make him happier, because, in the opinion of others, to do so would be wise, or even right...The only part of the conduct of anyone, for which he is amenable to society, is that which concerns others. In the part which merely concerns himself, his independence is, of right, absolute. Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign." - John Stuart Mill
(1806 – 1873), British philosopher, political economist, Member of Parliament and civil servant. He was an influential contributor to social theory, political theory, and political economy. He has been called 'the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century'. Mill's conception of liberty justified the freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state control. Quote from his book, 'On Liberty'.

[Quote No.42497] Need Area: Friends > General
"We will not build a peaceful world by following a negative path. It is not enough to say 'We must not wage war.' It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it. We must concentrate not merely on the negative expulsion of war, but on the positive affirmation of peace. ... We must see that peace represents a sweeter music, a cosmic melody that is far superior to the discords of war. Somehow we must transform the dynamics of the world power struggle from the negative nuclear arms race which no one can win to a positive contest to harness man's creative genius for the purpose of making peace and prosperity a reality for all of the nations of the world. In short, we must shift the arms race into a 'peace race'. If we have the will and determination to mount such a peace offensive, we will unlock hitherto tightly sealed doors of hope and transform our imminent cosmic elegy into a psalm of creative fulfillment." - Martin Luther King, Jr
in his Nobel lecture, 11 December 1964.

[Quote No.42498] Need Area: Friends > General
"But peace does not rest in charters and covenants alone. It lies in the hearts and minds of all people. And if it is cast out there, then no act, no pact, no treaty, no organization can hope to preserve it without the support and the wholehearted commitment of all people. So let us not rest all our hopes on parchment and on paper; let us strive to build peace, a desire for peace, a willingness to work for peace, in the hearts and minds of all our people." - John F. Kennedy
in his Address to the United Nations General Assembly (1963).

"[The best political philosophy, along with the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution, is about ensuring the most noble, moral and practical sentiments, namely that]...the strong are just and the weak secure...[as they individually pursue their unalienable human rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and property]." - John F. Kennedy

[Quote No.42506] Need Area: Friends > General
"[The philosophy of collectivism - socialism, in particular in the case of the German National Socialists (Nazi's) organised around national identity, rather than citizens in general, was so important that the Nazi Party had it inscribed around the edge of the Nazi reichsmark coins they made and distributed.] 'Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz' [This has been variously translated and interpreted as 'The community comes before the individual' or 'The common good is more important than any individual's interests' or even 'Politics and state power is more important than economics and individual wealth (i.e. living standards)'. It was a favourite phrase of Adolf Hitler and one he used endlessly in his speeches. This collectivist belief he had was complex and slightly different from communism's similar belief but it still essentially meant that individuals had no rights and that 'the greater good' of the majority -utilitarianism through the lens of the state as the people, was the only standard of value. Under such a system, man was not an end to himself [and thereby free], he was only a tool [a piece of property - a slave] to be sacrificed for the Führer, autocrat or ruling mob. Only capitalism regards man as a sovereign individual with an unalienable right to his own life, liberty and pursuit of happiness and property. Government recognition and protection of individual rights is the hallmark of a moral, peaceful, productive society. This negation or subjugation of individual rights to state rights, made it possible for the Nazis in the 12 years between 1933 and 1945, to massacre over 20 million people, including starting the Second World War and planning and trying to implement 'the final solution' - the genocide of the Jewish population throughout any area in which they had control, starting in Germany and Europe.] " - Adolf Hitler
Leader of the Nazi Party - the German National Socialist Party - before and during the Second World War.

"[The Golden Rule:] What ye will that other men should not do to you, that do ye not to other men." - Alfred the Great
(849 – 899 AD), King of Wessex, England from 871 to 899. He successfully defended his kingdom against the Viking attempt at conquest, and by his death had become the dominant ruler in England.

[Quote No.42509] Need Area: Friends > General
"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself, so long as you don't hurt another's physical person or property:] The data show a clear positive relationship, the more individualized the nation, the more citizens enjoy their life. This suggests that the benefits of individualization are greater than its costs. Inspection of the scattergrams shows a linear relationship. There is no pattern of diminishing returns." - Ruut Veenhoven
Quote from the Abstract of the research paper, 'QUALITY-OF-LIFE IN INDIVIDUALISTIC SOCIETY - A comparison of 43 nations in the early 1990's', Published in : DeJong, M.J. & Zijderveld, A.C. (eds) 'The gift of society' Enzo Press 1977 Nijkerk, The Netherlands, ISBN 90-74670-08-3, pp 149-170. [Refer http://www2.eur.nl/fsw/research/veenhoven/Pub1990s/97a-ab.htm ] {Methodology: 'Individualization is measured by three aspects: 1) moral appreciation of individualism, 2) opportunity to choose, and 3) capability to choose. Next overall individualization is measured by means of an expert-estimate. Quality-of-life in nations is measured by the citizen's subjective appreciation of life as assessed in representative surveys.'}

"['Live and let live!' - Freedom from interference by force, coercion or fraud, so long as not hurting another's physical person or property:] Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and to be guided by truth as one sees it.
