It Takes a Village (To Divert Responsibility From the Person Actually Responsible)

No, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Dealer Isn’t a Murderer – The Daily Beast

It is easy to understand why the public demands homicide prosecutions against drug providers whose product caused the death of a beloved celebrity like Philip Seymour Hoffman.  A person lies dead; someone must bear responsibility for his death.

And God forbid that the person responsible should be the guy who slammed a couple pounds of smack into his veins.

Why, if you start thinking like that, the next thing you know you’ll be expecting everybody to take personal responsibility for their own stupid choices.  And we certainly can’t have that.

Can we?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
