You should know better, and if you don’t, it’s still your fault

January 5, 2013

Rarely do you see such a neat and tidy explanation of a tautology at work:

Conservatives would have us believe that the customer is responsible for knowing if the bank is misleading them and that if they didn’t do their own research, that’s their problem. In the next breath they also tell us that corporations would never deliberately harm their customers because the “free” market would punish them. So we should trust the banks but if they lie to us it’s our own fault for believing them. It’s a perfect tautology for holding banks unaccountable for their actions.

H/T to addictinginfo 🙂
