Rudy Giuliani defines freedom

It's been getting around the internet a bit. But it's still a fundamental insight into the man who would be king.

We see only the oppressive side of authority. Maybe it comes out of our history and our background. What we don't see is that freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be. Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal of discretion about what you do.
