“On Liberty” Book Review

Recently, I read a very good book that I thought it would be good to do a review about it. The book is called “On Liberty”. Here is the description, extracted from Amazon:

“Discussed and debated from time immemorial, the concept of personal liberty went without codification until the 1859 publication of On Liberty. John Stuart Mill’s complete and resolute dedication to the cause of freedom inspired this treatise, an enduring work through which the concept remains well known and studied.
The British economist, philosopher, and ethical theorist’s argument does not focus on “the so-called Liberty of the Will…but Civil, or Social Liberty: the nature and limits of the power which can be legitimately exercised by society over the individual.” Mill asks and answers provocative questions relating to the boundaries of social authority and individual sovereignty. In powerful and persuasive prose, he declares that there is “one very simple principle” regarding the use of coercion in society – one may only coerce others either to defend oneself or to defend others from harm.
The new edition offers students of political science and philosophy, in an inexpensive volume, one of the most influential studies on the nature of individual liberty and its role in a democratic society.”

Syed Zubair says:

Yes, SJWs are a nagging bunch who themselves know nothing about life or suffering. Very happy to know that you are open minded enough not to be one of them. ‘On Liberty’ by John S.Mill is on my amazon wish list. Thank you for the book reviews. Keep your videos coming. Your advices are invaluable.

Chris Mackey says:

Excellent book and video.

People should be free to learn / evolve / conform to society at their own pace and their own choosing or not.

Lee Zamastil says:

Outstanding pick, John. You’ve been going for some deep cuts recently. It’s interesting to watch your presentations evolve while you look beyond programming and speak on liberty and philosophy. And I agree with your conclusion: some past “heretics” are now our most admired thinkers and scientists. Keep it up. Cheers!

Off topic comment here!

I am reading your book Soft Skills (great book btw) and you said that you can name basically all the cards of Magic the Gathering. What is (or what was) the strongest card?

Kurt Gödel says:

Mill was a horrible writer. The next book to read would be the politics by Aristotle!

Curs Cursando says:

How i change from a junior programmer to a senior programmer?

Akuma Industries says:

haha, im super happy to hear you talk about minority opinions and personal freedoms. I myself hold unpopular viewpoints. Having to withhold my opinions at school or at work is just how it is. Think for yourself but move with the herd. Leave your personal opinions for people you trust.

Whitley Blaine says:

Waiting for feminists and liberals to be offended for no reason.
