Please take the time to watch this and see if there are any flaws in it.
The philosophy of Liberty
Do you think Jefferson, Bastiat and many others have tried to say this in other ways?

well of course they have..
ideals no matter how they are expressed (written or verbally) and no matter their content (either acceptable by mores and standards of their day or not accepted) are always pure..
The problem comes with the Human equasion..
(7 points taken straight from wikipedia)
and when some willfull ignorant corrupt sonofabitch (or a collective of likeminded sonofabitches) who suffers from one or more of the above maladies and who has means, motive & opportunity...(the elements of a crime of course) and more than likely huge doses of #3,6 and 7 are at play.. the rest of mankind that is bound with this (these) individuals most especially if they are in power.. suffer and lose..
always have.. always will
and thats the damnable misery of the human condition..

Outdated, what parts?
What is selfish about freedom?
Is being against what is called "legal plunder" outdated selfish talk?
Is this outdated or selfish?
"Here I encounter the most popular fallacy of our times. It is not considered sufficient that the law should be just; it must be philanthropic. Nor is it sufficient that the law should guarantee to every citizen the free and inoffensive use of his faculties for physical, intellectual, and moral self-improvement. Instead, it is demanded that the law should directly extend welfare, education, and morality throughout the nation.
This is the seductive lure of socialism. And I repeat again: These two uses of the law are in direct contradiction to each other. We must choose between them. A citizen cannot at the same time be free and not free." Frederic Bastiat

I was being Facetious. I am a social Conservative and a political Libertarian.
