This really is a puzzling attitude in light of Europeans' attitudes toward personal responsibility. To wit: visiting a medium-sized city on the Swiss/German border, my expat friend took us to a popular mountaintop viewing area, looking down on the town.

Whatever it was... it's no one else's responsibility, not government's, just your own. Why would this be different? The content creator bears responsibilty, and not an intermediary.
