It is possible for the individual to take personal responsibility to
explore any extremes that they wish. One may tickle oneself or pummel
ones own head into a wall. This is a personal decision, based upon
knowledge of consequences, with an understanding of the impact of this
behavior upon others.
If I decide to smoke (because it is sanctioned by the government), and
there is a "free" (sic) medical system, then the government could be
understood to provide me with quadruple by-pass surgery when I am 58, and
longterm cancer treatment at 63.
Is it a desirable use of limited resources? IMO, this morning, that
depends whether you are the smoker, the surgeon, the hospital worker, the
government, the tax-payer or the daughter.
