on liberty

Review :

I've been meaning to read this old classic for a long time now, and I'm really glad I finally got around to it. Regardless of whether or not you agree with its ideas, On Liberty is certainly worth a look at. In its short but complex look at society and individuality, it manages to reach law, philosophy and politics all at once and really leave you thinking. Unfortunately my mom took the copy of it we have to Belize before I could finish the last two pages so technically I didn't complete it, but it's a strangely engaging read. You'd expect it to be a bit dry from its description, but it's actually very interesting and a book that everybody can enjoy and learn from no matter their background or knowledge. I especially liked how down-to-earth and concise Mill is in his writing. Short, sweet and to-the-point, he never throws in pointless filler and always has something enlightening to say.
