'Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign.­' To this 'one very simple principle' the whole of Mill's essay On Liberty is dedicated. While many of his immediate predecessors and contemporaries, from Adam Smith to Godwin and Thoreau, had celebrated liberty, it was Mill who organized the idea into a philosophy, and put it into the form in which it is generally known today. The editor of this essay, Gertrude Himmelfarb records responses to Mill's books and comments on his fear of 'the tyranny of the majority'. Dr Himmelfarb concludes that the same inconsistencies which underlie On Liberty continue to complicate the moral and political stance of liberals today.

According to Wikipedia: "John Stuart Mill (20 May 1806 8 May 1873), English philosopher, political theorist, political economist, civil servant and Member of Parliament, was an influential British Classical liberal thinker of the 19th century whose works on liberty justified freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state control. He was a proponent of utilitarianism, an ethical theory developed by Jeremy Bentham, although his conception of it was very different from Bentham's. Hoping to remedy the problems found in an inductive approach to science, such as confirmation bias, he clearly set forth the premises of falsification as the key component in the scientific method.­"

THE COURS DE PHILOSOPHIE POSITIVE. For some time much has been said, in England and on the Continent, concerning "Positivism" and "the Positive Philosophy.­" Those phrases, which during the life of the eminent thinker who introduced them had made their way into no writings or discussions but those of his very few direct disciples, have emerged from the depths and manifested themselves on the surface of the philosophy of the age. It is not very widely known what they represent, but it is understood that they represent something. They are symbols of a recognised mode of thought, and one of sufficient importance to induce almost all who now discuss the great problems of philosophy, or survey from any elevated point of view the opinions of the age, to take what is termed the Positivist view of things into serious consideration, and define their own position, more or less friendly or hostile, in regard to it. Indeed, though the mode of thought expressed by the terms Positive and . . .

3. ON PROTECTION TO AGRICULTURE – David Ricardo
4. Observations on the Effects of the Corn Laws – Thomas Malthus
5. The Grounds of an Opinion on the Policy of Restricting the Importation of Foreign Corn – Thomas Malthus

The Corn Laws were passed to protect landowners in the United Kingdom and Ireland against competition from less expensive foreign imports between 1815 and 1846 and imposed steep import duties, making it too expensive for anyone to import grain from other countries.

This sounds a familiar conflict today when trade friction and political dispute are heated by exporting massive cheap low end products to the rest of the world.

Regarding the Corn Law in 1815, John Mill, David Ricardo and Malthus were on opposite sides of the free-­trade issue.
