Know When To Fold ‘Em. If Not, Sue

Posted by Mike on March 12, 2008

I stumbled across this article about Graham Calvert, a compulsive gambler from the UK who took his bookie to court, blaming him for the two million pounds he lost, declining health, and damaged marriage. What struck me was that the article did not even suggest that the gambler himself might actually be responsible for the choices he made.

When debating liberals about issues of personal responsibility, I often hear that they do in fact support personal responsibility before they go off on why a certain person should not be held personally responsible. My liberal friends are at least aware of the concept of personal responsibility. It’s a little frightening that the concept didn’t even cross this AP reporter’s mind.
