Rightful human liberty is a function of man’s equal natural human rights.

“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.” Thomas Jefferson

Wrongful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will with no limits, or within limits drawn around us by the inferior liberty of others. Tyrants possess wrongful liberty “to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men’s labor.” Tyranny, from the point of view of a serf, is obstructed action according to someone else’s will (the tyrant’s will) within limits drawn around him or her by the superior liberty of others (superior liberty of the tyrant and his cronies). Envision 1,000 people moving three dimensionally in the Superdome – each a unique individual – each naturally surrounded by an equally protective sphere – all equally protected in their life and property. Under equal liberty each individual possesses maximum freedom of activity – maximum human liberty – maximum “unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.” As soon as any individual or group unjustly possess superior liberty they become surrounded by larger protective spheres which, out of geometric necessity, unjustly reduces the freedom of activity – the liberty – of everyone else. Imagine a King or Prince, a Bishop or Imam, or the Socialist Pigs of Animal Farm – “superior people” surrounded by spheres tens or hundreds or thousands of times larger than that of the “little people” whose liberty is thereby cornered and constrained within limits drawn around them by the superior liberty of others. Superior liberty for any group of people is the definition of tyranny, because superior human liberty for some requires inferior human liberty for others, i.e., a superiority of human rights requires violation of human rights.
