Who should be blamed for bad decisions?

Who should be blamed for bad decisions?

Should it be the politicians?

The people?

The scientists?

Or people controlling what information people get to see?

As an adult, you only have yourself to blame for your bad decisions.

I thought people would be smarter than this. Here's something to think about if you want to exercise your brain.

If a decision is made based on false information, is the decision maker to blame?

Or is it the perpetrator of falsehoods?

Or is it the person(s) who prevented access to information that could dispel the misinformation?

The case law is pretty clear.
There was a case from about 20 years ago, (maybe more), where a patient with sinusitis went to see a naturopath and was given treatment that worked very well for over a year.
However, the patient eventually ended up with arsenic poisoning and sued the naturopath.
The naturopath won because the patient did not do their "Due Diligence" in informing themselves about what exactly they were taking from the naturopath.

Due diligence is very important in the legal world, and as far as BC courts are concerned, "taking a Doctor's word for it" does not constitute due diligence.

All anyone can do is fully investigate & seeking actual creditable sources, even with all this... sometimes :swear: happens.

...do some internal evaluation; Are you aiming to tell the truth or just "win"? Are you aiming to inform or to promote a narrative? Have you checked your facts or are you just accepting what you are told? Ad Nausica

The people are to blame, they keep buying into scams decade after decade and century after century.
