“Freedom is the will to be responsible to ourselves.”— Friedrich Nietzsche
Freedom and responsibility go hand and hand. We can be free to do whatever we please as long as we don’t harm another. We must as a society agree on a set of rules to protect others and ourselves. As kids, we wanted to grow up and do whatever we wanted. However, we didn’t realize that adults have responsibilities and that includes taking care of us as children. Freedom has its own limitations that we have to abide by. Driving and owning our first car is symbolic of claiming our independence from our parents. But getting our license and obeying traffic rules is our will to be responsibility to ourselves. That’s freedom because we look after ourselves to make sure that we’re not misusing our freedom.
