06/30/2006 Archived Entry: "Hardyville: The Quality of a Free Man"

I WON'T BE ONLINE WHEN THE JULY 1 HARDYVILLE column (which is not, technically a Hardyville column this time) officially goes up. So here. I'm sneaking the column to you early. Lucky you, eh?

I'm hoping this column will spark some discussion & inspire other people to add to or help me refine my list of qualities.

Along with the column go these apropos quotes from the wonderful Liberty-Tree quotes service:

"Liberty is the prevention of control by others. This requires self-control and, therefore, religious and spiritual influences; education, knowledge, well-being."
-- Lord Acton [John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton] (1834-1902), First Baron Acton of Aldenham

"Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them."
-- Justice Joseph Story (1779-1845) US Supreme Court Justice
