Rights and Liberty: What is going on here? Google Ngram Viewer Chart shows “rights” increasing, its mirror image “liberty” decreasing

176-7, 185-6, 187n5

If you type in the words “rights” and the word “liberty” you find the word “rights” increasing while almost in mirror image fashion the word “liberty” falls. In effect this means – consulting my previous posting – that the incidence of the word “rights” does move favorably with “democracy” but the word “liberty” does not.
