In the movie Jurassic Park, Jeff Goldblum delivered the most meme-worthy line of the film. While learning about how the experts had brought dinosaurs back to life, Goldblum playing Dr. Ian Malcom, said, “Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.”
It’s a line that’s been used on social media for almost anything people find weird or disgusting. I’ve personally used it for Dorito-flavored Mountain Dew, so I’m not judging here.
However, I think the idea of thinking about whether you should over just whether you can is an important point in the gun rights community.
