Marie asked:

Is this book for real? Is this book really arguing against the idea of taking responsibility for the things you do?!?!?!

Robin Not at all. The book is arguing that sometimes, context is important in considering whether or not someone has violated a law. Being responsible implies that one has control over the events: sometimes that is not true. A child escaping from an abusive mother should not be considered "criminal" when their flight results in an unintended bit of damage to someone's home, for instance. Instead, the child should be protected and the parent investigated, and the property damage handled without criminal charges. Did you READ the book? It is excellent.
