I am hoping to find someone that can take this quote and help me understand it better.


The quote is:

“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of the government. The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it.”
Woodrow Wilson
The papers of Woodrow Wilson, 25:124

Regarding his “New Freedom,” Woodrow Wilson said "the history of liberty is a history of the limitations of governmental power?"*

What does that mean?

Thank you,
S
