  •  Doesn't personal responsibility extend to (1+ / 0-)

    We're so reticent to let people off the hook who work for corporations whose products and practices we regularly revile, it is hard not to conclude that the Left is worried about antagonizing Big Labor.

    It is time for us to talk about our individual responsibility to choose the work that we do. Whether we are choosing between learning to kill others in the military or learning to heal and save others as first-responders; whether we are choosing between building bridges or building bombs; whether we are choosing between distributing vaccines or distributing cigarettes; whether we are choosing between working for green energy, or black energy; We should be responsible for our choices.

    Just as we preach responsible consumerism, we should teach responsible ways to make a living, not a killing.

    Always make new mistakes - Esther Dyson
