Political Liberty consists in the power of doing whatever does not injure another. The exercise of the natural right of every man has no other limits than those which are necessary to secure to every other man the free exercise of the same rights; and these limits are determinable only by the law.--Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, 1789. From the series Great Ideas of Western Man.
