Accountability Peeve

Most of us responsible people value our right to choose for ourselves. That also means being accountable for outcomes of those choices. I do not especially appreciate others who expect me to give up that right, outcomes and all, just because they don't want to be accountable.  Am I alone in noticing the huge amount of scapegoatism rampant in our times? I prefer to seek solutions, not place blame.

If it's an issue of negligence, our jury system works just fine....until corporate lobby people masquerade as local grass roots movements that push peoples buttons to put caps on negligence cases so that they aren't held financially accountable. Generally, SSDI  (social security disability) gets to pick up the tab...that's our tax dollars at work folks! I learned that in paralegal studies.

If you're interested, 'Hot Coffee' (Movie), a very informative documentary on the subject, is available on Netflix. Contrary to popular hype, civil cases that make it to court generally have merit and it's the only way that we regular folks have to hold big money accountable for wrong doing. The jury system in America works. Unfortunately, urban legend hype cost us basic consumer rights...
