Just Leave Others Alone

Towards a non-interventionalist approach:

Let others do as they please with their lifestyle choices, their dietary choices, etc. Let us not become “interventionalistas” as Nassim Taleb says in his book “Antifragile”.

If people want to eat x, y, z or drink x, y, z or take drugs x, y, z … let them do it, as long as they don’t incite physical violence upon others.

Do we do more harm than good when we intervene?

Possibly! Think … when we build fresh water wells in Africa or when we give free Chromebooks to schools and kids, we make them more dependent on foreign entities, rather than letting them become independent and self reliant.
