Great question

Found at Random Fate...

Why is it that the groups that proclaim the importance of personal responsibility are also the ones trying to remove the freedoms and opportunities to make decisions that require personal responsibility?

Comments thread so far is thoughtful and on point.

I am reminded of a quote I came across a few years ago...

"Swimming pools can be dangerous for children. To protect them, one can install locks, put up fences and deploy pool alarms. All of these measures are helpful, but by far the most important thing that one can do for one's children is to teach them to swim."
