Chapter 4 Paper My first claim is that JS Mill’s concepts of libertarianism is the best way to go about politics and human rights. The harm principle, which is that a person should be able to do whatever they want as long as they are not harming anyone, makes complete sense. People who lead lifestyles that include homosexuality, taking drugs, and other “controversial” activities should not be outlawed because some people think they are wrong. Instead, people who disagree with it should ignore it, as it does not harm them in any way. Along with this, all opinions should be valid, with everyone leading lives that follow with their opinions, no matter how offensive it may be to someone, as long as it does not harm people. Some may argue that this concept could be taken advantage of and twisted, but it is a very simple rule to follow with simple laws that apply to it. A man can shoot a gun at a range, but he can’t at humans because it would bring harm to them. This all has entirely to do with liberty, because everyone should have the rights to do

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
