Liberté, égalité, fraternité
The French Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen of 1789 defined Liberty in Article 4 as follows:
“Liberty consists of being able to do anything that does not harm others: thus, the exercise of the natural rights of every man or woman has no bounds other than those that guarantee other members of society the enjoyment of these same rights.”
Equality, on the other hand, was defined by the 1789 Declaration in terms of judicial equality and merit-based entry to government (art. 6):
“must be the same for all, whether it protects or punishes. All citizens, being equal in its eyes, shall be equally eligible to all high offices, public positions and employments, according to their ability, and without other distinction than that of their virtues and talents.”
And without fraternité then neither of the above is possible…
So, when the polls call, stand tall, walk tall, speak your voice and take a stand for Liberté, égalité, fraternité
