"For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."

Nelson Mandela (1918 - )

So many people assume that freedom is a lack of responsibility but it exactly the opposite.

Freedom inherently requires a higher level of responsibilty to ensure that the freedoms of others are never trampled upon or taken.

Interesting proposition. Does freedom require you to become police over others? How often is this idea used and/or abused to send our troops into combat? VietNam? Or Iraq?
