Comprehensive new article from Haidt at Democracy a Journal of Ideas website. He is using the phrase Positive Liberty as I use Freedom From, and Negative Liberty as I use Freedom To. The left in the UK crticised Negative Freedom as the freedom to starve under the arches and offered, as Haidt says Johnson did, something called Liberty (to distinguish it from the right’s use of the word freedom) by which they meant Freedom From oppression, Freedom From tyranny, Freedom From class domination and the morphing into Freedom From injustice to Freedom From Social Injustice. The British Left motivated by the same Moral Intuitions made the same journey a little earlier than Johnson’s Democrats.
