One of the most abhorrent statements in the English language is ‘the ends justifies the means’. It’s used by people to rationalise away their actions, without taking responsibility for them. I genuinely believe that if there were one thing that could be changed to ‘improve’ the state of the world it would be to educate people on the critical importance of personal responsibility. No exceptions, no excuses, everyone is responsible for their choices and must accept the consequences of them.
