A person having his own body as an absolute property certainly can abuse his own body. This has nothing to do with others. Let me break it into 2 commonly believed myths regarding Hussain's statement:
If your intention behind paying taxes is to secure the welfare of the self abuser. By promoting this ideology you are opening a can of worms. Perhaps you should look at the birth place of Democracy. (Greece) The US being the richest country in the World does not have the resources to HELP the millions of homeless who have no opportunities because their Elected Governments chose to spend Trillions on Death and Destruction in faraway lands, let alone for those who abuse themselves. We should refrain from wasting valuable resources and direct all available resources to those who believe that self abusing is COOL.
