To stand on principle or stand on righteousness – what is the difference?

To stand on principle, values and the consequences for others is not the same as refusing to be told what we can or cannot do.

To protest war because you believe war is morally wrong is not the same as to protest because you refuse active service or participation in defence of place as a citizen. 

To believe that freedom is your right to decide to do whatever you like is to deny the same freedom and right to others. 

We are a world confused about what freedom actually means. 

If my actions will endanger others, is this a barrier to my liberty, or is this how we live in community?
