This image is to help educate people about the dynamics of state power versus Individual Liberty:

There is more individual liberty where there is less state power.
Where there is more state power there is less individual liberty.

State power grows larger when controlled by elite individuals as indicated by the white dot.
Individual liberty expands when individuals govern their own behavior as evidenced by the black dot.

I think liberals, especially, can learn a lot from this image-model. Most conservatives get this, but are still susceptible to the temptations of power.

Comments, suggestions and questions are welcome.

I may use this as my new signature.
