Liberty and Tyranny

This movie was awesome, if anyone is looking for an awesome movie to rent! It's the sure thing! It won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2007. Yes, it's subtitled, but if your eyes aren't perfect anymore, (like mine) the subtitles are big enough to actually read without straining! I also started reading a new book this morning that coincides with the theme of this movie. It's called, "Liberty and Tyranny" by Mark Levin. I stole this from the back cover...
"We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others, the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name- liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatible names- liberty and tyranny."
