Return to "Liberty" page.
- I agree, because liberty is a type of freedom, and usually the two are usued interchangeably. Also, note that on the WP Freedom page, it has Liberty linked under "Freedom as a concept" ~Lewis1350 (talk)
- That may be so, but the purpose is to make quotes easy to find. Just now I found this page looking for a quote I knew used "liberty". Had it been buried on the "freedom" page, I never would have found it. If the concepts can be linked then links should be enough; merging the pages only makes sense if the words are synonyms, which they aren't. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) 13:25, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
- The terms for Liberty and Freedom (political) or Freedom (philosophy) have often been used and abused in various ways. There are usually distinctions that are made between Freedom and Liberty, though often the meanings of different words and the differing ideas represented merge and mingle. The pages should probably remain separate for convenience in looking up quotes with the words, as pointed out in the post above. I will remove the merge tags and do a bit of cleanup on the articles. ~ V for Victory 04:44, 24 May 2007 (UTC)
