Dallin H. Oaks dealing with the responsibilities of citizens. I will not seek to repost the entire article (I do suggest that you read it at some point), but rather place the a few highlights that I feel are of note in society today:
Quote 1) "Some of the responsible personal conduct that is necessary to save America is the kind of conduct that is enforceable by law and legal process, but much of it can only be encouraged. In the end, many of our most important personal, family, civic, and church responsibilities are entirely voluntary. As Elder Neal A. Maxwell said in his address at this Freedom Festival last year, "Our whole society really rests on the capacity of its citizens to give 'obedience to the unenforceable.'"
At a time when most of our public discourse concerns rights, it may seem strange to speak of responsibilities. But a democratic republic needs patriotic citizens who are fulfilling their responsibilities as well as claiming their rights. No society is so secure that it can withstand continued demands for increases in citizen rights without producing corresponding increases in the fulfillment of citizen responsibilities. Responsibilities like honesty, respect for personal and property rights, self-reliance, and willingness to sacrifice for the common good are basic to the governance and preservation of our nation."
Quote 2) "Church members who seek to use LDS doctrine as a basis for concluding that government infringements on inalienable rights have excused them from obeying the law seem to have forgotten the principle of following the prophets. Until the prophets invoke this principle, faithful members will also refrain from doing so. We remain committed to uphold our governments and to obey their laws."
In both quote runs the idea that we as citizens do have our rights, but we all have our responsibilities that accompany this. From the far right we see those complaining about the government infringing on their rights. With the left we see the promotion of a system that seeks to take away citizen responsibility and place more and more aspects of individual responsibility on the government. As in most things, we should consider where out loyalties lie. To country, or self? Are we more concerned about our rights, or our responsibilities?
