Small giveaway where you can earn weekly upvotes on all your posts.

Next Sunday I will choose two most interesting answers from comments bellow and place respected authors on auto upvote list (manual or bot, depends on the time I have) till upcoming Saturday on 100% upvote (maximum of 2 upvotes a day). I will also post names of the winners for the upcoming week and a new question for you to answer if you want to enroll for the week after. It may not be much earning for start, but it's the best I can do for now and the more I invest and earn more you will be payed, so it's a win-win situation for you and me; also hoping to incorporate more people for rewards as time goes on.

I might start a conversation and if it goes into discussion in civilized manner you will get extended time of upvotes for more days, weeks... and who knows, maybe years to come.

Also, I will try to make sure that new people get involved all the time (this might not always be the case) but it all depends on the numbers of contestants and authors.

Rule is simple:

Comment bellow on this post (to get enrolled for next week auto upvotes) with an answer to my question; you don't need to upvote!
...and remember,

"There are no stupid answers, just stupid questions!"

What does LIBERTY mean to/for you?


Last week winners (upvoting starts today and ends on Saturday):

@marjanko - For small conversation

@beeridiculous - For trying to answer my questions

If you would like me to remove you from post tags, please comment and I will do so; sorry for the inconvenience caused by this.


Why do I do this?
The reasons are simple; I would like to give something to the community. As in life, you need to give happiness to receive it. It is not something you search for or look for, that is a waste of time and resources; to be happy is something you get from others and to get it you first need to give it.
I like to learn new things, look from other perspectives, try to be as opened to new ideas and thoughts, hear other people opinions, discuss, engage in talk on a specific topic; all for the sake of self-improvement.

Liberty, I imagine everybody knows, it's just another word for freedom, but nobody is totally free, so, to me it is just a fantasious state, just another word !!!

·

As gentleman before you said, it is not total synonym. There are differences.
Because of that word you might be alive...

·
·

Ironic, you answer might as well confirm my initial thought......
Why am I not at liberty to speak my mind ? where is the freedom ?

Liberty to me only means this "Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you. " Princess Diana

·

Not sure on what mrs are you referring to.
What you or Di described is karma...I for example can out of liberty critique someone without act of kindness ...it is still liberty, right?

·
·

mrs i was referencing to on your bottom post"One small sentence of gratitude to my wife Martina for all of Her support and inspiration!"

As for liberty then anything can be taken as liberty. For me its a freedom to be kind its not everyone's liberty to do so as much as we like it to be then the world would not be the place what it has become now. if you get what i mean

·
·
·

Ah...thanks in her name.
I got your point.

Good question @psyceratopsb! To me I think that liberty implies a freedom from some previous restriction or restraint.

·

On point. First we needed to have the rules.

Upvoted You!

Just Follow The Rules 😇 Thank You!

I believe this is almost synonymous with freedom, which is the ability to do what you whatever you want without interference from outside forces (other people, government, money constraints, etc). I think to me, Liberty takes this concept of freedom but tempers it a bit in that it only pertains to freedom from government interference. So you can have a society full of liberty and yet still have strong property laws and protections.

So broken down to be bite-sized: freedom is the absence of any outside interference on your will, Liberty is the absence of government interference on your will.

My phone also capitalizes Liberty automatically. So there’s that too 😂

·

Interesting analogy with government involved.
I'm gonna have to agree with you. Now the tricky question is to what extend should it be involved?

·
·

Establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.

According to the Preamble to the US Constitution anyway :P

This way, in theory it sounds so good...but just in theory

Waiting for your reply sir.

Oh, my dear you picked the tough one although it might not seem like that at first glance.

OK - I could play a smart blond and pick one of those official definitions like the most common one that would show up in Google like...

the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one's way of life, behavior, or political views

Although it's basically true it's still too narrow for me. On the other hand, I can agree a lot with @lastravage as there is not absolute liberty or freedom for anyone on this earth, including me.

No matter if those barriers, chains or even cages are forced upon us by society, government, family or we have been imprisoned by ourselves, unfortunately they exist in our lives way more than any kind of liberty.

Therefore, we are happy when we can grab even the smallest part of that huge idea. For me, sometimes and in some circumstances it would mean to punch some jerks in the middle of their arrogant face. Next time it would mean to choose my working hours and days off without any strings attached.

Some other time, it would mean not being limited by my pocket depth and available money for, e.g. buying a plane ticket to visit my son. But some days it would mean just not being obligated to answer anyone's questions about anything.

Google's definition is too wrong and as you said,narrow. It is not about how others treat you, it is how you treat others.
People always look at it how others restrict me, but it should be looked the other way.
It comes do to individuality at the end, and what one thinks of himself as a person in society.

Liberty is a right that is provided to us by our Creator. It is the right of choice.

·

I like your answer the most among all the others (including mine), and if I would be the one who chooses the winner, so far, I would choose you!

Well thank you, that is very kind of you to say.

·

Really good answer. Especially:

Its is the right of choice

I can agree to some extend as you have not mention who is the Creator. For me it is my parents. So it makes sense.

·
·

I didn't see in your question ,"What does LIBERTY mean to/for you?", anything about mentioning who the Creator is. I must have missed that part or did the question change?

For me it will be to choose whatever I think will be good for me.

·

For me it will be
To choose whatever I think
Will be good for me.
