An argument I’ve been hearing with increasing frequency:
Impulse control issues.
Is disruptive, reckless, or otherwise out-of-control behavior inevitable?
The one thing I never hear – in all the admissions of anguish and recognition that the problems are real – is the idea that maybe, just maybe, we could ask ourselves/each other to try to behave ourselves?
A half-century after we began hearing arguments that self-control is undesirable, we are now starting to believe it isn’t even possible.
