A recent idiot liberal acquaintance of mine has told me that the word "liberty" (which is my favorite word ever, incase you haven't noticed) is based on perception of someone's circumstance and can be defined multiple ways. No it can't. Liberty can be defined and I am going to make it really easy for you people to understand what liberty MEANS! Liberty is based on the principle of Self-Ownership. You own your life. To deny this is to imply that another person has a higher claim on your life than you do. No other person, or group of persons, owns your life. You exist in time: Past, present, and future. To lose your life, is to lose your future. To lose your liberty is to lose your present. and to lose the product of your life and liberty is to lose that portion of you past that produced it. A product of your life and your liberty IS YOUR PROPERTY. Property is the fruit of your labor and the product of your time, energy, and talents. This property can then be used for bartering, etc with other people if both parties CONSENT. That what it means to be free and liberated. So don't be one of those douchebags that says "liberty can't be defined!!" because we wouldn't want you looking like an ignoramus would we?
