98. Over-generalization: because someone says that a person is responsible for their behavior, that does
Edited on Tue Apr-19-11 03:01 PM by patrice
not mean that someone thinks that other people are not responsible for their behaviors too, in fact, it means the opposite of what you are saying. It means that people are responsible for their behaviors.

In the real world, the questions are about the circumstances, who is involved and HOW MUCH responsibility each bears, excusing ANYONE, even a provocative child from the facts, makes it possible to excuse anyone else, even someone who, as an adult, bears the majority of the responsibility or, as in the case of parents, a significant portion thereof.

on edit: too many negatives
