Childrens' Book Philosophy 19: Diary of a Wimpy Kid on Habituation and Moral Responsibility

Posted on ..

"Ok, so maybe I AM lazy, but it's not really my fault. I've been lazy ever since I was a little kid, and if someone had caught it early on, maybe I wouldn't be the way I am now. I remember in preschool, when playtime was over, the teacher would tell everyone to put away their toys, and we would all sing the 'Cleanup Song' while we did it. Well, I sang the song with everyone else, but I didn't do any of the actual cleaning. So if you want to find somebody to blame for the way I am, I guess you'd have to start with the public education system." - J. Kinney, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days"
