Abstract

This paper investigates the Federalist papers while stressing the significance of individual liberty in the US political system. The main intention of this paper is to locate and to define the current state of individual liberty in the US, taking into account the US political authorities’ attitude. This research derives from the following research question: What are the challenges of individual liberty in the US as a human right taking into account the Federalist papers? The US Federalist papers are treated as a “Constitution” of the individual liberty, and its driving force. Besides the right to life, this human right emerges as the second but not less significant than the latter. Individual liberty confirms the right to life and the right to live in a free, prosperous, and democratic society, where the state power is limited by human rights, and thus, guaranteeing the well–being of the people. Individual liberty as a basic human right, especially recognizable for the US, remains as a main pillar of the US democratic political system, historically established by the Founding fathers. In the end, this paper concludes that individual liberty is taken, not given by the state, and thus, it must be improved and preserved, as a bulwark against the destructive forces of the state and its repressive apparatus.
