Liberty or Justice for All?


It seems as though a lot of political issues boil down to these two arguments.

One, the argument of liberty. Stating that people are free to pursue their own happiness as long as that pursuit does not harm anyone else, and that the government has no constitutional authority to be involved.

Second, the argument of justice. That the consequences of this government inaction would create injustice.

Are we playing with poor definitions here, or is there an inherent dilemma between these powerful words?
