Please write a 10 page (3000 word) paper on the following topic:
John Stuart Mill lays out a very clear principle for determining the scope of society s authority over the individual: As soon as any part of a person s conduct affects prejudicially the interests of others, society has jurisdiction over it but there is no room for entertaining any such question when a person s conduct affects the interest of no persons besides himself In such cases there should be perfect freedom, legal and social, to do the action and stand the consequences. Think of a case where the distinction between the interests of others and the interests of the individual is less than clear. How would Mill defend his principle in light of such a case? Is this defence adequate?
The paper paper should start with an introductory paragraph (or two) that contains a clear statement of your central thesis, or what you intend to demonstrate over the course of the paper. The body of the paper should then build support for this thesis. There is no need to make use of additional literature, beyond the course readings, but if you do, please make sure that any ideas not your own are clearly attributed to their source through a footnote. The paper should end with a concluding paragraph, which states clearly what you have explained in the paper and summarize briefly how you arrived at that conclusion. The paper should be double-spaced, and referenced using a recognized citation format of your choice.
