Genuine conflicts of fundamental rights are unavoidable because of the very texture of our liberty. We are constantly struggling for its expansion, and yet that very expansion may lead to the contraction of someone else's liberty. In an ideal situation, we could perhaps all agree on what we take to be a harmonious society. However, in a liberal, pluralistic society the challenge of any given conception of harmony is regarded as a necessary feature of any evolving community — and that is probably the very core of liberty, and its paradox.
