Homespun Symposium VIII

This week’s question, as posed by CJ at The Unmentionables:

What, in your opinion, are the moral responsibilities of the individual citizen in the United States (or your own country) today and how do you believe people should act upon (or react to) those perceived responsibilities?

Moral obligations are due to God first, family and neighbors next, and nation third. They are, as given by Jesus Christ, to love God with all of one’s heart, soul and mind; and to love one’s neighbors as oneself.

Simply, it means putting others’ needs ahead of one’s own–without government compulsion. It’s only when people live according to these principles, which the framers of the Constitution understood, that true freedom is possible. When citizens pursue their own interests ahead of all others, social order can only be maintained by tyranny.
