When you wish you had a crys­tal ball, or not.

I lis­te­ned to this while wri­ting this post, try it while you read :o)

This post is the ninth of a series of fif­teen posts about free­dom during the COVID-19 cri­sis. These posts must be read in order, star­ting with the 6th post would make abso­lu­te­ly no sense to the rea­der. Enjoy rea­ding and above all, enjoy reflecting.

Now, let’s sup­pose that all the citi­zens in the neigh­bou­rhood are fed up with all this noise and that by com­mon agree­ment (or by a very large majo­ri­ty), they decide to put for­ward a regu­la­tion pro­hi­bi­ting any acti­vi­ty pro­du­cing unna­tu­ral noise lou­der than 30db unless they apply for a per­mit. Does this mea­sure infringe on indi­vi­dual free­dom? Well, no. In a context where a mino­ri­ty, or even a small majo­ri­ty, imposes its wishes on others, we would be in a dif­ferent situa­tion, but if eve­ryone is in “almost” com­mon agree­ment and wants to add this rule to enjoy a sense of indi­vi­dual free­dom, well, it would be cra­zy not to do it. In our context, a tem­po­ra­ry exemp­tion is pos­sible, still lea­ving eve­ryone free to be able to pro­duce noise for an “essen­tial” rea­son, or if it were for a cele­bra­tion, for example, but we must remem­ber that eve­ry­thing is done in an “almost” ful­ly demo­cra­tic process.

Let’s finish with this example of noise. If, for example, citi­zens wan­ted to make their lives easier and ins­tall noise sen­sors with alarms or other detec­tion devices, the same rule applies. If, by mutual agree­ment, almost all citi­zens wish to have such a device, consi­de­ring that it would help raise awa­re­ness of acci­den­tal inci­dents and that it would help social peace, why not? It would be unac­cep­table for a local govern­ment to uni­la­te­ral­ly decide to ins­tall this type of device.

To be conti­nued tomorrow…
