Liberty/Participation/Liberalism/Rights/Isaiah Berlin/Rawls: One of the principles of classical liberalism is that political freedoms have less intrinsic weight than freedom of thought (freedom of consciousness) and freedom of the person. If one should have to choose between political and all other freedoms, the rule of a good ruler who respects the latter and observes the law would be preferable. From this point of view, the greatest merit of the principle of participation is,...
