The promise of freedom without responsibility is, in reality, slavery without escape. We think we do what we want when, in reality, we do what we are told.
An interventionist government’s promise of equality is the recipe for stagnation because governments can only equalize down. They can only make the rich poorer, never the poor richer, thus weakening everyone.
Defending free will, individual initiative, and freedom does not mean that we disregard society. Society is a conscious, personal choice by which we bring together our individual needs and purposes, driven by personal initiative, and choose to invest in a way to improve our lives. This ultimately delivers better results for the vast majority.
Society doesn’t strive to make people the same, requiring us to surrender our individual rights. Society is not created to make everyone equal, but to make each of us able to achieve our individual best.
Society and free will are not enemies. Society and absolute power are.
