Every right we have carries with it a certain duty and liability clause as part of our invisibile social contract. We may have the freedoms of certain behaviours but we have responsibilities that are not forced by anything but our own sense of duty. This is a beautiful thing but it is also a heavily exploited thing, that humanity is for ever looking for the great excuse for why something is not his fault.
Of course there are factors that are out of our power, this is not what I’m talking about, but that is called accountability; A measurement of justice versus justification.
“I do this for you, you do that for me” is the foundation of society.
You get “rights” and privileges in exchange for compliance and labour. It’s a fair deal, equal exchange of value.
BUT that does not mean it’s right for everyone, or even for most people. However, if one chooses to play the society came one has to obey the rules. It’s that simple.
@manimal, Tell me about it :) Agreed, it’s not for everyone.
