On Liberty’s Liberty
By Carlos Rodríguez Braun
This article appeared in the Spring 2010 issue of The Independent Review


John Stuart Mill began his book On Liberty (1859) by asserting that power may be rightfully used against someone only to prevent harm to others and not for the person’s own good. Although he was off to a good start, Mill also offered a host of anti-liberal ideas that are profoundly hostile to freedom.
