Perhaps I am to idealistic, and to much of a rebel, but something about the statement,
"freedom does mean and can mean only that what we may do is not dependent on the approval of any person or authority and is limited only by the same abstract rules that equally apply to all." really just did not sit well in my stomach. In my head being forced to follow rules is not freedom, and the picture of "freedom" Hayek paints is not freedom it is just accepted conformity. I am not saying that this accepted conformity is a bad thing, by all means it just might be the best way for society to interact with each other but don't call it freedom, there is no freedom in conformity.
