The idea that determined actions based upon causation negate the responsibility of those actions is so cunningly fallacious and as misunderstood as it gets. The correlation so intertwines with our society that it seems impossible to argue otherwise. Is it so difficult to understand that a determined action that produces negative consequences that the punishment is enough of causation to prevent a repetition of negative behaviours and produce responsibility? It’s actually rather dependant on this.
