I see what you're saying, but if a person doesn't have the experience (or knowledge) to make the correct decisions then I can't bring myself to pass judgement on them.

I get the impression from talking to friends overseas that viewing disease as a punishment for bad decisions is a uniquely American phenomenon. For example a friend of mine in Belgium was perplexed when someone said that a musician who'd died of cancer deserved it because he was a cigarette smoker. The idea was completely foreign to him.
