Philosophy of Liberty

We all enjoyed this flash animation explaining the principles of freedom. Simple, straightforward, and triggering some important points of discussion, eg: whether or not it contains a particularly accurate perception of the nature of time, and then some quibbles over the "initiation of force" issue.

In a bit of a hurry, so am not sure, but isn't this animation criticising Bush's and Blair's (and us letting them presumably) initiate force against Iraq?

I don't think most libertarians would object to the idea of proportionate self-defence, so the question here would be "was the attack upon Iraq a matter of proportionate self-defence?" Don't think the answer was explicit in the animation.

Hope you made it!
