The Framers wrote the Constitution to protect the liberty of American citizens. But what exactly did “liberty” mean to them? More importantly, what should it mean to you? Eugene Volokh, professor of constitutional law at UCLA, explores this important issue.

Script:
Here's something we can all agree on. Liberty is a wonderful thing. The American Constitution says so, right in the Preamble: The Framers established the Constitution to "secure the Blessings of Liberty."
So, why doesn't that offer a clear answer to most of the constitutional questions that face America today? Aren't lawmakers, who swear to uphold the Constitution, obliged by their oaths to vote for liberty?
The problem is that liberty, like equality or justice, is a complicated idea that means different things to different people. Consider, for instance, one simple question: Whom do we want liberty from?
Well, we want liberty from a tyrannical government. That's why we have a Bill of Rights, and that's why the Constitution was designed to impose powerful constraints on the federal government (and, eventually, state governments).
But we also want liberty from foreign tyrants, right? What's the point of having a government that won't oppress us, if it can't protect us from foreign invaders who would oppress us even more? That's why the Preamble also says the Constitution is set up to "provide for the common defense."
Yet to protect ourselves against foreign tyranny, we may need to restrict domestic liberty. At the very least, the government has to impose taxes to pay for the military. Throughout American history, the government has also been seen as having the power to draft men to fight in wars; that's certainly a restriction on individual liberty. But it's long been seen as consistent with the Constitution.
We can see other examples, too.
The Fourth Amendment bans "unreasonable searches and seizures." That's a powerful protection for liberty. But it doesn't ban all searches and seizures; reasonable ones are allowed. That's in part so the law can better protect us from criminals intruding on our liberty.
Likewise, the Fifth Amendment provides that private property shall not "be taken for public use, without just compensation." But that means that sometimes your property can be taken for public use with compensation, however much this limits your liberty to, say, continue living in your family house that has been condemned to make room for a highway. Sometimes liberty does yield to public benefit.
What's more, everyone agrees that my liberty doesn't extend to violating your rights. But where do my rights stop and yours start?
The Constitution itself doesn't tell us, since it lists pretty much just those rights that are protected against government intrusion like the free exercise of religion. People disagree about what rights should be protected from supposed intrusion by others-for instance, by employers, or by large businesses that might try to stifle competition.
So, what do we do about this? How do we resolve all these hard questions about liberty?
First, the Framers of the Constitution explicitly protected certain liberties, such as the freedom of speech and the right to keep and bear arms.
Second, the Framers gave the courts a major role in defining the scope of those liberties.
Third, the Framers set up the structures of government-such as separation of powers-that would help protect liberty, by making sure that no single branch of government could unduly restrict liberty.
But then, fourth, they left the rest of the debate about liberty to the political process. Indeed, even the gravest violation of basic natural liberty in American history-slavery-was ultimately abolished by the political process, as well as of course by the Civil War, which was started and conducted by elected officials.
The Framers also believed that most decisions in people's lives would not and should not be made by the government. They should be made by ordinary people: which job to take, which business to start, whom to associate with, how much to sell or buy things for, and innumerable other choices.

Test Proves MSM Is Enemy of the People. You may have heard, that Obama signed a law granting journalists the right to use propaganda on US citizens. You dont trust who said that because you never heard that from TV or anywhere else. So you decide to a search for yourself to see if its true or not. Go ahead type this into Google " Obama approves Propaganda Against US Citizens" and see what comes up. Pay close attention to the headlines and who published it, these are Traitors to the USA, and will be punished accordingly. If the headline reads: Obama did not sign a law allowing propaganda, you now have Proof that the MSM is the Enemy of the People or at least that particular publisher. In 2012 Barak Obama signed the Defense Authorization Act and tucked into the act was H.R.5736 - Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012. This Act allowed for Journalists to use propaganda on its own citizens, essentially, giving them a license to deceive. This had never been done before in USA history, but the MSM didnt think it was newsworth enough to tell you! (please share everywhere) www.congress.gov/bill/112th-congress/house-bill/5736

Limited government =/= liberty Liberty as a concept is incoherent, or at the very least unreachable because hitherto any society which purports to have achieved it is lying. America does not have liberty, America just has an aesthetic of liberty and utilizes this as an ideological tool to further it's own interests. Albeit this is true of most societies that are built around liberal ontology and values.

Chinese protesters wave American Flags, they want what we have, and so many take for granted. By no means is the US perfect, but that is because Humans are NOT perfect, we are flawed, it is precisely these flaws that render Socialism/Communism useless! To combat the corruption that breeds in positions of power, a Constitutional Republic provides limitations, checks & balances, with transparency.

"slavery abolished by government" 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ Well that's just a matter of not knowing your history, whether there was a political dispute between certain Free Soil Republicans and the Dixiecrats separatists or not on the matter of slave and free, they are Politicians some of them believed what they stood for and some of them didn't. (Just like today) however the bigger issue is that slavery has always fluctuated in demand, I don't want to assume Lincoln had intended that Government would end out with a monopoly on the slave labor industry but if you've ever read the 13th amendment that's the only reason anyone would leave it the way it is now.

Dear Mr. Eugene Volokh, I recognize that you are trying to explain the idea and concept of Liberty, however, there is one major statement that I wish to add more clarification. For instance, I want to take a look at your statement about the American Civil War when you said, “Indeed, even the gravest violation of basic natural liberty in American history-slavery-was ultimately abolished by the political process, as well as of course by the Civil War, which was started and conducted by elected officials.” (Volokh) I researched your statement and found that the causes to the American Civil War did involved elected officials (i.e. the election of Abraham Lincoln) and Slavery. However, have you considered that there were also economic reasons for the cause of the American Civil War? For instance, according to Thoughtco.com, “The Southern economy became a one-crop economy, depending on cotton and, therefore, on enslaved people. Though it was often supported throughout the social and economic classes, not every white Southerner enslaved people. The population of the pro-slavery states was around 9.6 million in 1850 and only about 350,000 were enslavers. This included many of the wealthiest families, a number of whom owned large plantations. At the start of the Civil War, at least 4 million enslaved people were forced to live and work on the Southern plantations. In contrast, industry ruled the economy of the North and less emphasis was on agriculture, though even that was more diverse. Many Northern industries were purchasing the South's raw cotton and turning it into finished goods. This economic disparity also led to irreconcilable differences in societal and political views.” (Kelly) Thank you for reading my message, I hope that you are having a productive day or evening.

Liberty is your right to do whatever you want, as long as in so doing, you are not significantly harming the rights to life, liberty and property of any other person. That means the draft is wrong. That means taxation is wrong. Any government that actually was limited to only defending our equal, individual rights to life, liberty and property would enjoy voluntary contributions to fund it, and would enjoy plenty of volunteers to defend it at time of war.

Liberty is not a difficult concept. People define the term differently because they've never been taught what the word actually means. Same with equality, justice, freedom, etc. It is difficult to explain these simple concepts to Leftists because the Left took over education has guaranteed that people won't -- or can't -- think. Ignorant people are easier to manipulate.

Life liberty and pursuit of happiness. Our forefathers understood the pursuit of happiness is different than liberty and life. They also were wise in saying pursuit and not happiness. I also think they assumed happiness would not be mixed up with other things. Liberty is the ability to do and choose without being pressured. Freedom is the ability to think and act without unjust consequence. Or so it seems that way simplified.

You’ve made the same mistake the majority of “journalists” and editors are making, namely, referring to legislators as “lawmakers”. The words we use affect the way we think and the way we act. The founding fathers envisioned a system set up for the express purpose of NOT creating any more laws than absolutely necessary. A majority of the problems we have in our society (United States) now are the result of voters electing people who think it is their “job” to tell the rest of us what to do or not do. Please let me know when you hear about someone running for political office on the platform of voting no more often than yes on proposed legislation. I’d like to vote for him.

@robinsss OK. I've made a suggestion about something we, the people, can do to persuade members of Congress (both major parties) that the more laws they pass the more compensation they should receive. Now it is your turn. How do you suggest persuading them that more isn't always better? For example, have you ever written to your congressman imploring him to never vote on any legislation that he has not read in its entirety? Have you ever written to implore your congressman to not vote for any legislation until he is quite sure he understands it entirely. If you don't like my ideas, that's OK. But let's hear some suggestions about how to solve the problem.
