:: ::

This episode of the egg timer explores John Stuart Mill's 'harm principle'.  Mill offers this principle to suggest when the liberty of the person can be legitimately restricted.  The basic idea is that the liberty of people can be restricted when they harm or threaten to harm others.  What exactly this amounts to will be the crux of this episode.
