Intro to Black Politics Professor C. Wambu February 16, 2017 (b) David Coates - Time to Choose: Negative Freedom and Positive Freedom This article talks about the negative freedom and the positive freedom and the difference between them. The critics often argue about the policies and laws that the government passes and usually their arguments express negative freedom. This is similar to what happened in the early stages of the abolition of slavery when people argued that in the free country they are free to own slaves which is a negative freedom. One of the interesting things that this article talks about is that critics argue how the Affordable Care Act not effective because people have to pay for it, but this act allowed millions of more Americans an opportunity to have an insurance who did not had access to the healthcare insurance before. Another interesting thing is that critics argue about is the gun control laws that the Obama administration is passing that makes it hard to attain guns.
