When did we go from being a society bound by accountable actions, to done where every bad action has an excuse, every mistake is someone else’s fault and most punishments do not seem to fit the crime.
How is it even possible for a drink driver in Australia to kill a person and not do any time, when a lady in Afghanistan can look at another man and may be stoned to death for her crime.
How does each generate grow up to have more excuses and be less accountable for their actions than the next?
If no-one takes any ownership for their action, how do we maintain order and respect. Where do the boundaries end and begin?
If we don’t discipline our children, our staff, our society – do we have the right to complain when people act out?
If we have lost accountability – have we lost ourselves?
