Freedom first

• We all exchange a small amount of our freedom for the security of living within an organised society of citizens.

Power is given to government for the sole purpose of restricting behaviour that injures others against their will.

This limited government is the symbol of a free society. Extending the powers of government beyond that, into matters of personal choice, crosses the line between freedom and tyranny.
