#4 What is Liberty?

In this episode, we explored the following questions:

What is Liberty?
What are negative rights?
What are human rights?
What are negative rights & human rights founded on?

We referred to the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence, as well as writings from the founders of the United States to determine what their take on these questions were, and we also consulted paragraph 1907 of the Catechism. Our poem was “The Old Stoic” by Emily Bronte.
