    Default Your rights end where someone else's begin.

    Your rights end where someone else's begin.

    What do you make of this statement?

    Someone used to tell me this all the time and just recently this saying has got me thinking. Can you apply this in everyday social situations?

    In my opinion it's far to ambiguous and i'm trying to decipher it. If it means you can do as you please as long as it doesn't hurt me, does that mean then you can't tell a lie, end a relationship, spend too much money or even smoke around someone who doesn't smoke .. How does one draw the line on this?

    I look forward to hearing your answers

    If I was too wish for myself for people to accept the definition of what I consider polite, I had to leave this planet.

    Its like Santa said it:

    I think the statement is just referring to the social contract. There's no such thing as umitigated freedom. Not without screwing everyone else's lives up.
