Liberty also means that you willingly restrain your acts such that they will not infringe on someone else's liberty. Unless you recognize where your own rights end and someone else's begin, you are guaranteeing that someday your own liberty will be jeopardized. Three stars for getting half of the equation.

Personal responsibility and restraint are essential to a society where liberty is the rule. Ken I believe they are more then half the equation. Without those you have chaos: A legal system where people can sue candy makers for making chewy candy too chewy, a legislature that holds hearings on the retirement benefits of pro football players while thousands of crimnals flood across our borders and octogenerean Medal of Honor winners must remove their shoes at TSA checkpoints.

For what is justice but the unhampered translation of act into response.
