Conditions of Responsibility, Conditions of Freedom 責任の条件〜自由の条件

責任を負うとき、責任を課するとき、以下のことを悟るべし。
Before you attempt to assume responsibility, or when you consider assigning responsibility to someone else, consider the following carefully:

選択肢がなければ、自由の条件はできていない。
If there are no options, the conditions of freedom have not been met.

然し、選択肢が一つしかない場合は、選択肢がない。
(Having only one option is the same as having no options.)

自由の条件ができていなければ、自由の範囲も備えていない。
If the conditions of freedom have not been met, a sphere, or range, of freedom does not exist.

自由の範囲がなければ、責任の範囲がない。
If a sphere of freedom does not exist, there is no sphere of responsibility.

責任の範囲がなければ、責任をとることもできない。
When there is no sphere of responsibility, it is impossible to assume responsibility.

つまり、自由に選べる選択肢がなければ、責任をもって動くことができない。
In other words, when there are no options, people cannot act responsibly.

(自分が選んでやっていることの結果を避けるな。)
(それとも、選択肢を許さず、人に責任を問うな。)
(Don't dodge the consequences of your choices.)
(And don't try to blame others when you don't give them options.)

自由=責任
責任=自由
Freedom is responsibility.
Responsibility is freedom.
