Don't cheat yourself out of liberty

Liberty is freedom tempered with responsibility. This means irresponsible people never experience liberty. Freedom, maybe, but not liberty.

They can't.

It's not that anyone violates their liberty more than anyone else's liberty is violated, but that the irresponsible people prevent themselves from experiencing liberty. 

By doing things they have no right to do-- things which violate the equal and identical rights of others-- which is a big part of irresponsible behavior, they are cheating themselves out of the best thing about being human. They are cheating themselves out of living in liberty for a little temporary freedom.

That's pitiable.
