Virtually every comment on Facebook is about one choice or the other. Some comments are about the choice between conservative and liberal, or left versus right. Others focus on the politics of liberals and democrats versus the politics of conservative and Republican parties. There are comments about the West needing to separate from Canada, and the gun lobby and gun rights versus the antigun liberal establishment who would like to get rid of guns. And of course there are the comments about evolution versus Creation, God versus Satan or the church versus the state. The divisions are endless and the debates just as unending. There is no resolution. This is because the wrong discussion is being engaged in. The real issue hinges on accountability. The real question is if we are accountable for the costs we create or are we avoiding paying for what we took possession of. No one wants this discussion because no one wants the bill. It seems we all think that if we avoid the issue of costs we will manage to gain marginally more than we pay for. This is the negative side of all of the divisions listed above, and more. All evil consists of freeloading, of taking what you have not paid for and creating costs one does not pay.
Accountability has two flavors, the positive and negative. Negative accountability is paying for all costs created by us and not creating costs others must pay. Negative accountability also means we are not subject to costs created by others, we require others to pay their own costs.
Positive Accountability is ensuring all those who create value are paid for the value they create, including ourselves. We have a right to be paid for all value created by us.
Accountability is the discussion we ought to be having rather than all these side issues. Without accountability none of these other issues can be resolved. Https://dextarian.net
