Duty

2 years, 6 months ago

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.
As individuals we find excuse for our behaviour, as groups we also do this just as we do it as nations and as humanity in general (usually blaming one of these other factors). The thing is; the group factors would not even be an issue if only we could each take responsibility for our own individual behaviour, despite what may or may not have influenced it.
It is duty to focus force in a responsible and productive manner, this does not need to be forced on anyone, duty cannot be forced as it never has forced anyone but those who have it, but people need only be shown the benefits and draw-backs of how their own personal duty may manifest.

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.
I have said before that: “If you are not confident in your powers and authority to effectively manage your duties, then simply sub-contract them but just take on all appropriate subsidiary rights and responsibilities with it. It is, or should be, standard business practice and measured within accountability. I really don’t see what is so difficult for people to not understand that. (shifty eyes)
