Apple "I didn't plan to pick a fight with Steve Jobs last night. It just sort of happened: An iPad advertisement ticked me off; I sent the Apple CEO an angry email; he told me about 'freedom from porn'. The electronic debate proceeded from there." Says the man who used to use LSD. This man knows how to sell iPads to America: think of the children!

There are two notions of freedom or liberty: positive and negative. The first two paragraphs under "Two Concepts of Liberty" in this Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy provide an example of both.
