Reader’s comment: Blame everyone but yourself


In response to Sam Burgess: The moral case for conservatism Part 4 – the community

Mike Bell wrote:

Burgess identifies two consequences of the nanny state:
*destroying communities of work
*breaks down community

Agreed, but the biggest one is missing: undermining personal responsibility.

A child is killed by its parents – blame social services;
Children are sent to school without breakfast – blame low benefits;
Increase in drug deaths – blame the cuts;
Obesity crisis – blame the food companies.
Etc, etc.
