Isaiah Berlin’s Two Concepts of Liberty In his article "Two Concepts of Liberty", Isaiah Berlin identifies and contrasts the two components of freedom: negative and positive liberty. While the author’s voice is often confused amidst the frequent references to other political philosophies from Platonic to Millian theories, Berlin successfully argues that both of these notions can be misconstrued to the point where liberty itself is sacrificed. Although reasonable, Berlin’s assessment of the two concepts seems artificial and effortlessly simple, as if freedom could be defined according to a rubric; one can, however, agree with his statement that absolute freedom for one individual undoubtedly limit’s the freedom of another. Positive liberty, in the simplest sense, is freedom to, answering the question "Who governs me? "; it is the liberty of self-government.
The first section explores different views on setting standards for modeling restrictions to freedom of expression or to prevent the abuse of free expression. In this part the Harm Principle by John Stuart Mill, the Offence Principle by Feinberg and the liberal view of constraints of free expression are explored, including the crucial parts of their theory and their limits. Evaluations of the theories will be presented. Mill’s Harm Principle did not clearly illustrate the harm caused by speech but conduct. It also failed to define psychological harm.
To healthily exercise liberty, one must responsibly censor degrading comments and actions that could infringe upon the rights of another individual. Mill advocates for free speech on several grounds, first and foremost on the basis of the protection of an individuals social liberty. He states that the entirety of the essay is not about the “liberty of the will” but more the “civil or social liberty of an individual” (Mill,1) This characterizes that Mill cares more about the individual and their needs than what the majority is in favor of. His belief that the weaker should have constant protection against the stronger affirms that government should preferentially guard and support those being attacked by a greater force.

The individual is to be left alone to exercise his own desires and choices without external coercion. Thus, in Berlin’s conception, freedom is a property of individuals and consists of a realm of unimpeded action. A person is free to the extent that he is able to do things as he wishes – speak, worship, travel, marry – without these activities being blocked by other people. For Berlin, an individual is unfree if he ‘is prevented by others from doing what he would otherwise do.’ One major justification for minimising intervention into the lives of individuals, for liberals, may be a fear of a possible ‘tyranny of the majority’, including a majority religious or moral view. Mill, for example, was conscious of the damage that could be done by an over mighty state.
