In addressing whether conduct could be judged both responsible and irresponsible at the same time, one of our regular readers wrote the following:

"Human nature exists in a continuum; there are no lines dividing 'types,' and the types are not clearly defined."

In response thereto, we wrote:

"We are in 100% absolute agreement with [you.] You won't get an argument from us on this subject.

"However, we seriously doubt that the majority of people in the Universe have this view."

This also applies, unfortunately, to the position articulated by Don Mackenzie. It takes some clear headed thinking to reach the position described. Most people aren't clear headed.

One thing I would have to agree with for sure: Most people aren't clear headed! Still, it is important to try to develop a broader view so as to make oneself more adaptable and willing to collaborate on important issues.
