A peculiarity of our species is its reflexive need to make one individual responsible for what happens: Smith’s slap, Putin’s war. The concept of personal responsibility contests the truth that we are not in control, things happen as they must, and everything causes everything
Nothing that happens has a sole cause. There are numberless causes for everything. Thus, blaming is a stupidity and faming a conceit. We’re not in control. Everything that happens, happens as it must.
Allow only the man who has spent time in solitary confinement to make the case for its necessity.
