With the success of the anti-tobacconists, every conceivable kind of business could suddenly find itself liable, retroactively, for alleged risks dreamed up by unscrupulous lawyers and their conniving clients. Litigation itself could prove hazardous to our health, and to the health of our free enterprise system. Do we really want to be a nation of victims, a nation of petulant children? This is what we will become if we keep refusing to accept responsibility for our actions. Life is full of risks. The only way to avoid them all is not to get out of bed in the morning, and then you run the risk of muscular atrophy. People make mistakes; it’s part of being human. Some people acknowledge them; some blame others. The ones who accept responsibility are called adults. — “Random Thoughts on Responsibility,” F.R. Duplantier
As much as you may love your parents, would you want to move back home again and be treated like a child? Most people would answer no, but many of those who would are perfectly content to have the government take care of them — and treat them like children. With freedom comes responsibility. Let someone relieve you of your responsibilities and they will soon usurp your freedom. Be a man. Be a woman. Not a victim. Not a child.
