c. Liberty upsets patterns.
2. Any egalitarian distribution of goods or opportunities based on a “plan” can never stay in place without:
a. Making the plan comprehensive for the entire country.
b. Continuous violations of people’s rights and freedom.
c. Figuring out everything in advance.
3. According to Nozick, to what extent should government authorities interfere in the lives of others?
a. On a limited basis, such as to maintain order.
b. We should only maintain a basic income for all.
c. The government should never interfere in the lives of others.
