Freedom & Responsibility
Let's pretend that your new school principal announced a new policy that after eating lunch in the cafeteria, all remaining food must be thrown in the garbage. As you can imagine, most of your friends will not pay attention to this new policy and will leave food on the tables and floors.
Since students are not acting responsibly, your new school principal has announced an even stricter policy. Anyone caught leaving food on the tables or floors will be suspended. Although many students are being suspended, many of your friends are still ignoring this new policy.
Now your new school principal is really upset and has announced a stricter policy. This new policy does not allow students to leave the cafeteria until a teacher has escorted everyone to the garbage can with his or her tray.
