Liberty

Liberty, a core value of the children's liberation movement, is the freedom of individuals from outside compulsion or coercion. Philosophies such as that of the child liberation movement that seek to maximize liberty by protecting the individual's freedom of action over the use of his person and property are called "liberal." The flip side of liberty is personal responsibility, the requirement that individuals bear the costs of their actions unless others volunteer their resources to rescue the person from those consequences. Liberty is noticeably absent from the agendas and value systems of many movements that claim to be concerned with children's rights.
