Accountability culture MUST go both ways

Accountability cannot be one directional.  Standards cannot apply only to some but must apply to all. In a society where it is easy to make accusations, real or not, without accountability to what is found to be real or not only takes our culture to new lows. Our rich cultural history is filled with many real and provable mistakes.  Even more, the lessons which were learned from the mistakes have shaped our culture for the better.  Unfortunately, some trends have crept into our culture which disregards the dignity and respect of our fellow human being when damaging false accusations are tossed about without two-way accountability.
