Liberalism refers to a political doctrine that emphasizes on protecting the freedom and rights of the citizenry. Liberals view the government as an arm that protects citizens from external and internal threats but at the same time recognize that the government by itself can be a threat to the freedom of the citizens. In his pamphlet Common Sense (1776), American philosopher Thomas Paine compared the government to a “necessary evil.” Law enforcers, Judiciary, and the constitution are meant to protect individuals' right, property, and liberty but in some instances, the same institutions might be used to against the individual.
In 2006 the State of World Liberty Index released a ranking of the most liberal countries in the world. The ranking was based on economic freedom, individual freedom, and the size of the government and taxation it levied on its people. Estonia, Ireland, and Canada were ranked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively. The UK and the US were ranked 7th and 8th respectively while New Zealand was ranked 10th. The 2017 ranking used the same data sources but with adjustments to the data.

Economic freedoms are part of the formula , but only part safety health , quality of life, education , play a role as unhealthy homeless people tend not to be free, taxation is an issue as most people dont like the government taking all their money , although in some societies high taxes are considered a fair trade for generous public services available to all but most people prefer to spend their own money their own way ,I'd like to adress the mass shooting , if they happened every day i think they'd be an issue, as they do here, but they are extremely rare occurances and usually new zealnd is super safe.. ironically the fact that the usa is flooded with guns and has lots of shootings to Americans is indicative of our freedoms
gun laws were until this year relatively liberal to with a license a b c d or e on could own different types of guns each class requiring more vof a security check or training but New ZEaLAND has promised to tighten up its laws to prevent future shootings , We have to remember to the rest of the world the ability or ease of buying a gun isnt prioritized over public safety and valued as such a cherished freedom
The 2006 State of World Liberty Index was created by combining the rankings of four other indexes of world liberty into one: the "2005 Economic Freedom of the World" Index (Fraser Institute), the "2006 Index of Economic Freedom" (The Heritage Foundation), the "2005 Freedom in the World" index (Freedom House), and the "2005 Press Freedom Index" (Reporters Without Borders).https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_World_Liberty_Index i'm sure an extremist might contend that stricter gun laws mean a terrible tyranny but let us remember that extemist opinion s are not what should be of value as they are the products of unsound unhealthy minds
Also please note, rankings used to create the below are typically delayed by one to two years. So, they do not reflect any recent events that may have occurred within the past 6-12 months.http://patrickrhamey.com/saturday-research/2019/3/18/2019-state-of-world-liberty-index i have proven all i need to prove the rest is just smoke and mirrors by the enemy to confuse people with things that have zero import
