words of wisdom wednesday

"it is a complete lack of responsibility in parts of our society, people allowed to feel the world owes them something, that their rights outweigh their responsibilities and their actions do not have consequences. well, they do have consequences."
david cameron
british prime minister
in reference to the riots in london

when i read this i almost screamed "YES!! EXACTLY!!!"
this applies to so much more than just the london riots.
this sense of entitlement coupled with rejection of responsibility and accountability
so prevalent in society has disturbed me for quite some time.
it did my heart good to hear it put so succinctly.
