Much of what Mill writes is very inspiring. His concern for freedoms should issue a wake-up call to governments the world over. Mill offers some simple solutions to the world's problems by his anti authoritarian ideas. If practised, being ready to listen to others, to accept criticism and to be able to explain rationally what one thinks and believes would make social relations that much more easy going and without conflict.

Social relations and sanctions for poor behaviour are all explained and, if implememnted could make criminal law so much simpler

Now, when liberty is so misunderstood and under threat from the forces of darkness, this is essential reading to appreciate our best exponent of the meaning of liberty and why it matters.The downside is the early victorian style of long sentences, paragraphs and flowery language.

John Stuart Mill was the progenitor of modern liberalism and On Liberty was arguably Mill's magnum opus. The book, published in 1859, espouses the principles of individualism and utilitarianism. Highly recommended for anyone interested in political philosophy, politics or history.

On Liberty I like, this cheap and nasty reprint I do not - returned it lickety-split.
Was equally disappointed that The Cheshire Cat did not make an appearance.

Given the recent attacks of charlie hebdo I felt like i needed some schooling in the importance of free speech and free expression. Utterly brilliant essay that illustrates the importance of not silencing any opinion no matter how radical or 'offensive'. It also highlights the way in which even when censorship of some horrible words and opinions sounds like human decency and social responsibility, this power that no-one has the right to wield could bestow some one not so decent and it can turn ugly very quickly.
