Promoting Well Being VS Limiting Power
My promotion is this: society should have lesser laws while governments are under more laws as their guideline. Laws are invalid if they are given to people who do not have power, whereas people who can make laws, enforce laws and justify laws "do" have power.
Freedom is all about the well being of every person. If freedom is about doing whatever the person wants (regardless of the consequences), then why is freedom important? Freedom is important because it is about well being, not the exercise of power. If a person was given the right to hurt someone else, then it is an exercise of power and not freedom.
Freedom "can" be about the ability to do what the person wants, but as long as it does not intervene with the well being of others. If a person takes the opportunity to harm another one's well being, then that is the exercise of power. If an individual has the ability to make harsh laws that will eventually harm well being, then government should be under stronger guidelines and not the people.
