Can there be accountability, in the absence of character?

A stark reflection of the effect that the declension of the nation's character is having.

    Liberty requires Responsibility. Cultivating a culture of irresponsibility and blame is the despot's game.

    Financing poverty is both cause and effect of culture's economic irresponsibility and most of the have nots. Financing victimhood (Will's quote forgot, by evangelical propagators (government schools)) is cause and effect of culture's (as Archer stated) lack of personal responsibility. Financing victimhood is both cause and effect for cultures of complaint, blaming and war.
