Like alcoholism or drug addiction, irresponsibility is a disease. And like almost all known diseases, it is inherited via both nature and nurture, even though we don’t yet understand precisely how all this biology works. Irresponsibility, that is, failure to respond in a way that is not self-preserving or adaptive of yourself and your family to events will eventually result in elimination of your biology from the gene pool, and, this is the final effect of narcissism…excessive love of oneself … excessive selfishness. Homosexuality is a reflection of narcissism. A failure to discriminate, differentiate, and then properly judge your own feelings – your natural sensory mechanism – is a failure to adapt. You might be able to drive through red lights once or a few times. You can rationalize as much as you wish. But, continuing to respond improperly to your senses will most probably, eventually harm you and those around you. Any other alternative would defy the Copernican Principle, a fundamental principle of science; there are no special observers; the earth is not the center of the universe. If you feel my words abuse your sensibilities, instead of freeing you of misunderstanding as intended, then you may take your dung ball and go elsewhere. I will not harm you.

Try any ole AA meeting or similar. Or any psychotherapy session, which I used to conduct daily. Or any shrink’s couch. They all make you responsible for your own actions, your feelings and your thoughts. A disease is still one’s own responsibility. What one sees as a disease, another man can see as an opportunity. Stephen Hawking comes to mind. Irresponsibility is the failure to respond, without regard of the reason for the failure.

A “disease” is merely a classification, meta-information, made by statistical groupings, a type of taxonomy, that is, technical semantics used to describe observations. Reality is not changed by observation except at the levels of quantum physics and spirit. Classification does not change responsibility, i.e. the ability to respond. Individuals are responsible. Otherwise there is no liberty.
