Isaiah Berlin (1909-1997), Freedom and its Betrayal: Six Enemies of Human Liberty
(London: Chatto & Windus, 2002), pp. 103-104 (on Hegel):
The essence of liberty has always lain in the ability to choose as you wish
to choose, because you wish so to choose, uncoerced, unbullied, not
swallowed up in some vast system; and in the right to resist, to be
unpopular, to stand up for your convictions merely because they are your
convictions. That is true freedom, and without it there is neither freedom
of any kind, nor even the illusion of it.
