Much is written and it seems especially in South Africa about the Rights of Citizens and rightfully so, after all it has taken 300 years (sic) for some to achieve those rights which were denied to them by various authorities and governments. I figure this has a lot to do with the American Bill of Rights which has served as model for many other states, but is it not incumbent also that with RIghts go Responsibilities? From Jacques Rousseau an Opinionista from The Daily Maverick
Whether critiquing Broadway shows, bestselling books or bills of responsibilities, every critic has to learn the lesson that his view appeals and appals with equal vigour. But critics of showbiz or literature are seldom called on to “do a better job, then”. We can decide to see for ourselves – and the hell with what the critics say. But we can’t pick and choose in the business of social values, freedoms, rights and responsibilities.
