Responsibility to be taken

Therefore, do not be passive; take on your responsibilities
in all the fields open to you in our world! [1]

Freedom is to be served with the discipline of truth, using it for what is a true good with a righteous and responsible conscience for others.
The apparent justifications for freedom of development and progress should not prevail with abuses of life and the irresponsible enjoyment of love.
In decisions, truth cannot be replaced by fashion, subjectivity or success, otherwise moral permissiveness makes utilitarian relationships prevail, as they make to lose responsibility in speaking and facilitate the alienation of the common good.
