IPO 2008


1. Is the person identical with its body?

2. It is true that, in democracies, the people seems to do what it is wishes; but political freedom does not at all consist in doing what one wishes.

3. Where there is no common power, there is no law; where no law, no injustice. (Hobbes, Leviathan 1, 13)

4. A free man must be able to endure it when fellow man act and live otherwise than he consider proper. He must free himself from the habit, just as soon as something does not please him, of calling for the police.
