A Scout is Loyal
There are responsibilities and duties that come with privileges. Look at someone who has a lot of privileges, and you will also see that they have many responsibilities. Those who seek to have privileges without also fulfilling their duties are those who are also trying to neglect their values and principles. Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969, 34th President of the United States of America) said, "A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both."
