I am getting really sick of EVERYTHING being "omg omg the children".
No matter what concept comes up now, whether they want to ban something, or simply take away rights from others. Not to mention, "OMG SAVE THE
CHILDREN" being used as a way to force the government into innocent peoples' households.
Personal responsibility to every parent, to make the choices for themselves and their family should rest on THEM alone.
Just because you think Sponge Bob is making your kids gay, doesnt mean you should ban it so mine cannot watch it.
As far as this topic, no I don't think anyone should be held accountable in any way if they choose to go against a government order. If someone
decides to put themselves in danger, this is their own choice. Even if it is "certain" death, and the person does not die. The government should not
then, in disappointment that they survived, turn around and FINE them.
Maybe we should ban swimming at the beach, since people can drown or be eaten by sharks. Perhaps we should make it criminal for people to eat deep
fried foods since it can give them a heart attack.
