Is personal responsibility dead?

Reading in the paper that a Danish sailing boat has been hijacked by pirates and the family with three teenage children are being held hostage, when they were sailing in the area of the Horn of Africa. Sorry if I don’t cry a river over this, because I don’t really feel that the Danish government is responsible for paying any ransom at all for these nimwits. There is such a thing as personal responsibility. If you regularly drink you accept that your liver is going to take a hit, smokers accept that the chances they will get lung cancer are high. But somehow these numbskulls who go on a fishing trip at areas infested with pirates known for hijacking and ransoming ships are not supposed to have this responsibility.

What happened to natural selection in this world? The child who swallows one too many marbles doesn’t live to pass his genes on to the next generation.
