    Aeon Skoble is a master at making the moral case for liberty.
    First is a respect for other’s rights, then within that framework, living any way that I choose.  
    Freedom for myself cannot be had unless others respect MY rights as a higher goal than their own freedoms.
    Equality of Opportunity is not at all the same as Equality of Outcome.  And Freedom is a much higher goal than Equality.
