    I’m very fond of Aristotle’s "rational moderation" model wherein we each have rights so long as these rights do not interfere with the rights of others.

    a free society is a misnomer in the first place.
    society is a group of indivduals who agree to exist and cohabitate together.
    this by defintion limits the things you can and cant do in the society.

    so the closest we can get is a society that tries to be as free as possible.
    so the line of represive and authoritarian law is not a line for society but each individual law.
    the question must be asked, does this do more to keep freedom and safty, or hinder the privelages of its citzens.

    When you get something like the present administration in the UK running the place. But it could be worse!
