It's your responsibility

First, a little ad to pay the bills-- I really need an infusion of money for some unexpected expenses (on top of the expected ones). PayPal or Venmo are faster, so that would be preferable. Thank you, and onward to the content.

If "average people" aren't interested in liberty because it requires responsibility, I can't help but wonder if they think responsibility is harder than it is.

What do you consider your responsibility?

I would say your responsibility is to not violate any other person’s rights; to not interfere with their liberty in any way. Really, nothing could be simpler.

A statist might believe your responsibility is to obey the government and its “laws”. Regardless of whether they are right. This is upside down. 

If government and its legislation are wrong, it is your responsibility to ignore them; to break those "laws" and thumb your nose at government's opinion. Especially if by obeying them you would violate another person's rights and thus their liberty.

Thank you!
