If a person is allowed freedom is it reasonable for them to expect zero responsibility if it is misused or causes harm (either directly or indirectly) to others?
Freedom always requires responsibility. You could stop after the word "responsibility" in that sentence and leave it at that.
If I cause the harm or I abuse that right then I am responsible. If I didn't then how can It be my fault? We all should have a personal responsibility for the things we do.
Freedom and responsibility are directly proportionate.
hey Rocker, let me know if I have this right: Sam and John have the right to carry a gun, John walks up to a stranger and shoots them out of the blue, Sam should not feel guilty at all for ability to carry a gun bec John abused ability to carry?
gotcha, then no Sam should not feel responsibility for John's stupidity. however, being a law abiding citizen, Sam may think about how that right had been abused and seek ways to prevent it in the future.
If your trying to sell more gun laws forget about it
nice assumption, no I'm not. I'm addressing our responsibilities as law abiding citizens that have agreed to live as a coherent group under one set of laws. but thanks for that helpful comment.
