Just because we rise above the need for doctrine and fear mongering doesn’t mean we lose accountability. In fact, we become your accountable. Because individuals are harder on themselves than others could be. They know how to self punish. Not that this is good, but it eliminates the need for outer mandates. When we remove the knee jerk reaction to enemies, we release the need to be defensive. We ease out of primal mode. When we are finally out of primal mode, we have the space and ease to discern truth for ourselves. This creates a more accountable version of ourselves. Because embracing truth is the motivating factor to being more honest with ourselves.
