Freedom + Responsibility = Liberty
It's the USA's Independence Day, an event worthy of celebration.
The post title is an idea I've been mulling around for over a year now. If I were a social scientist -- or Stephen Den Beste -- I'd write several hundred or several thousand words about it. But I'm not.
The point is that Freedom is precious, but that Freedom without Responsibility means T-R-O-U-B-L-E. That may not be a self-evident truth, but I hope it takes without an awful amount of reflection.
