Freedom in action to defend Liberty. Freedom is the action verb. Force to Stand against tyranny is not the antithesis of Liberty.

The "force" here described would be more a kin or relatable to an application of corporeal justice than freedom, law, equity, inalienable right or liberty. Where there is applied force, freedom wanes.

Angra Mainyu, destructive force "is the absolute antithesis" of Khvarenah, the projected power upon and aiding the appointed sovereign. Sowell's lack of defining "force" leads to misunderstanding that which force is.
