A conversation about the definition of liberty
Today I was arguing with a socialist friend about the concept of liberty for libertarians. I was defending the idea of negative liberty and he asked me the following question: Is a person who falls into a hole free? If the answer is no, then the idea of negative liberty is not correct, since being trapped in a hole does not imply coercion from third parties. What is your opinion?
