Changing Kiwi booze culture: Personal responsibility
Changing the Kiwi booze culture
New Zealand may have a binge drinking problem, but it all comes down to personal responsibility.
A bar owner can be fined for having a drunk person in their bar, but there is no come back on the person for getting drunk in the first place.
If they refuse to leave the bar and the police get called, it is the bar owner once again that is at fault.
Why is it that New Zealand has no consequences for an individual's own actions? We always have to pass new laws or make new rules that affect the rest of society for the actions of a few.
A law that made it illegal to be drunk in a public place would certainly help to control the drunkennes that occurs.
Put it back on the binge drinkers not the rest of us.
