    Definitely an extreme viewpoint

    I had to read this book for my Honors Compostition class at North Dakota State Univ. The book is definitely a slow read, make sure you have lots of time to read it (you'll probably find yourself re-reading large chunks of it). Mill's viewpoint is definitely extreme, from my point of view. He writes from a very liberal point of view, and suggests allowing no restrictions on human liberty except when another person would be endangered. Several of his arguments seem week and he adds very strange exceptions to his ideas. The book is interesting, but not a must read.

    An unsubscribed idea

    Perhaps this would be a happier world if more people subscibed to the philosophies of Mill. In this work Mill puts a high value on the concept of liberty and has many enlightening ideas on economics and Christianity. Mill is a little wordy and his chapters are long, but he is an accomplished writer and a great defender of liberty. I hope that more will read and adopt the philosophy of Mill in this generation and value liberty as much as Mill.

    Give Me 'On Liberty....'

    John Mill has challenged us to reach the bounds of Liberty in our every action and deed. Concepts of Freedom and Liberty come to life in his essay which challenges not only his contemporary society but all societies to come. It is interesting to note his comments about current society and governments being capable of addressing this issue. There are still many governments in this 21st century world who do not subscribe to the philosophy.
