Free and Responsible People.
The idea of freedom is not-an abstraction: we have
freedom from and freedom to. The' good society
gives its people the opportunity to realize ever greater
human and spiritual values. Like other moral virtues,
freedom can only be maintained by carrying out
its duties. + + s . *, + . + ,
The priiciple of responsibility is not a creed taken
from, sme book of utopian philosophy. In some form
or other it, is strong in the hearts of all except the mist
depraved and graceless people; the thoughtless, the
ignorant and the indolent. 4 4+ +4 4 .. ..
A Duty is. not a spectral figure, solemn and grim,
stalking us and making notes of our delinquency. It is
more like a guide, leading us to ju',ify our existence
by making the wdrld a little better than we fo.udt it.
If we had a hundred space-platforms orbiting the
earth, the human story would still be told in terms of
individuals discharging. their duty responsibly.
