Liberty means freedom. And the most critical freedom to mankind is FREEDOM OF SPEECH. It is from such freedom that other freedoms derive from. The freedom to speak up against tyranny, poverty, illiteracy, poverty, etc.

It doesn’t matter if one is wise or stupid, for in a civilized society, like water, will find its own level. But that freedom of speech must be the supreme right above others.

Once that right is obtained, as hard won by the forefathers of the American Constitution, from the generals to the foot soldiers, it must be defended, even at the cost of our lives, for generations today and into the far future.

Then can only equality and liberty be obtained. So now you now how significant and important 1776 AD had been for the future of mankind?

But one MUST always remember, with that freedom comes a price for any society that makes claims to democracy and civilization. That price is called CONSIDERATION FOR OTHERS WITHIN SOCIETY’.

No man lives alone, is a self centered individual or is an island in a civilized society. We need and help one another to progress. Without which, we are no better than the beasts of the wild, incapable and undeserving of evolution,

Etymologically, liberty and freedom are functional synonyms of each other.

In that sense, it's true that "Equality with Liberty is Freedom", though also "Paris Hilton with Liberty is Freedom" or "Coors Lite with Liberty is Freedom", etc.
