Freedom to harm yourself Freedom is the ability to think feel and do whatever one chooses so long as he or she doesnt harm anyone else Americans compared to the rest of the world have a lot of freedoms I do believe though that there is one freedom that is being ignored by the American government This freedom is the right to harm yourself The American government has gone too far in creating laws to protect people If someone doesnt wear their seatbelt they arent causing any danger to anybody else If someone wants to die it shouldnt be anybodys decision but their own The government has no right in making laws to force people to protect themselves Earlier in my English 101 class a topic was brought up about people that want to grade children for weight in elementary school Many students in the class agreed that people have a right to be fat and unhealthy if they want to This like wearing seatbelts is a topic that the government shouldnt be sticking its nose in Nobody wants to be told by the government that they cant have candy and soda People have a right to live unhealthy lifestyles Many people would argue that the reason victimless crimes are illegal is because the governments interest is to help the people However people only need two parents They dont need the government telling them what to do in these in these cases It is one thing for a mother to tell her son to wear his seatbelt or to not eat ice-cream It is different however for the government to intervene in this situation Basically there is little difference between the government telling you that you cant be unhealthy and telling you to wear your seatbelt The right to harm ones self is so fundamental that it is wrong for the government to take it away
