Philosophy quote

"When people 'just won't try', blaming doesn't help. Look for what caused the helplessness, and try to change it. And the best way to do that is by adopting a determinist - or naturalist - perspective that focuses attention on the real causes of what we do. When we understand those causes, then we can better understand how to enhance our freedom, our fortitude, our creativity, and our self-control; how to better take responsibility, and take control, of our own lives. Moral responsibility gets in the way of that. If you want to promote freedom, reject moral responsibility and promote naturalism." - Bruce N. Waller
