How America lost common sense

leave a comment »

This cartoon succintly captures the role lawyers have played in stripping us Americans of common sense

I love this cartoon. It is a great commentary on the litigious nature of our society and how lawyers have contributed to a systematic erosion of common sense among the populace. It places enormous burdens on our society, in terms of costs incurred, to safeguard ourselves from other peoples mistakes. While accountability is important, individual responsibility  should have equal merit.
