As discussed, the choice of drunk driving. I have to admit, I drive when I drink. But I am never so intoxicated that I can't walk in a straight line and I refuse to drive people when I am DUI. People that knows me knows I do this. And there are many times where my friends takes away my keys. So yes, I believe self-determination is good but only in a controlled surrounding since people always make mistakes. I also believe self-determination is a basic human right.
I have questioned whether to respond to this but I figure you've heard similar lectures before, so I'm going to add mine.

You know what's funny? The guy said a similar thing you said there. He was adamant that he wasn't so drunk that he couldn't walk in a straight line. He only had a couple of pints, he said, and blah blah. Well, if he hadn't drove after a few pints with his mates that day, both of my parents would still be alive today.

Bottom line: When you drink you are absolutely the worst judge of whether you're fit to drive or not. That's all I wanted to say.

There are times when right choices are made for one and there are also times when one must choose for oneself. It really depends on the combination of what the decision-making situation is all about and the current condition of the person choosing or being chosen for, and you shouldn't overdo one or the other.

We are responsible for our actions. Sometimes, we 'think' we know what's best for ourselves.
