Culpability

Responsibility comes before Rights! Always! In every other situation, a person must prove their responsibility before being given the rights that come with them.
Just sayin’! 😉 ❤

We don’t talk much about moral responsibility, or culpability, these days. We are big on “rights” but we fail to acknowledge that rights imply responsibilities. If I have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that imposes a responsibility on my part to acknowledge your rights to the same. There’s no such thing as one-sided rights — except in the cases of  children or the mentality challenged who cannot possibly be expected to acknowledge their rights to those who are responsible for their welfare.

      No problem, Hugh! Thanks for taking the time to write this excellent piece of writing. This has been a problem for several generations and I can tell you that I had the problem of blaming others for many years. Once I took responsibility for my life, it just got better & better. As I used to tell my students, “Quit blaming others & take back your power!”
      It’s amazing how much better life gets once we do that! 😉 ❤
      Peace,
