I Alone

I will accept any rules that you feel necessary to your freedom.  I am free, no matter what rules surround me.  If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them.  I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

-- Robert Anson Heinlein (1907-1988), The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress (1966)
