A Lack of Imagination

I got a bit of hatred for my newspaper column “Accidents don’t deserve punishment.” And a little for the follow-up video I made, too.

People LOVE punishment. And they lust for it. And they simply can’t imagine finding themselves in the position of being on the other end.

Unfortunately, I can imagine it.

I’m aware of times I did something really stupid in moments of distraction. Moments which could have ended in disaster for someone (usually including me). But I lucked out.

Sometimes people aren’t so lucky.

This is why I have some sympathy for people who cause accidents. I know it could easily be me. Or anyone. No one is so special they are immune.
