If Linus gets an abortion, I'll be a little shocked.
All these years I had him pegged as a male.
While it is indeed common sense to avoid cigarettes and large drinks that contain lots of caffeine and sugar. While incandescent bulbs can be used and still purchased...although eventually this dinosaur will be replaced by much more effecient lighting such as LED. While many people who would be dangerous to society with a fork and spoon own multiple firearms. I'll reserve comment on coal and on God ( the latter for obvious reasons).
I can go to Cumberland Farms right now and buy a pack of cigarettes and a liter bottle of soda. I can go to a church of my choosing, I could probably get my hands on a gun too. I still use a few incandescent bulbs and I can still buy them, but as they burn out I replace them with CFLs.
But I don't smoke , I don't drink soda, I don't own a gun, I don't follow any religion , but again, these are choices I made.
So, even though Lucy tells Linus that some things are bad for him or bad for the enviroment, people still choose these things. Governments and leaders can attempt to point you in a certain direction ( not always good) , but individuals in our society are constantly choosing unhealthy lifestyles....this will never change.
People have freedom of choice like never before. And they are choosing to do the wrong things. I choose a healthy lifestyle, not because someone tells me to, but because I like feeling good and hope to continue doing so for as long as possible.
Yes, you do have choices.
