From the Voters Guide: Accountability

If as individuals we recognize the importance of closing the loop of waste, then corporations should certainly be held accountable for closing the loop. If we realize that it is best to use what we have before we take more, because honest accounting tells that really is the best way to budget, then we should also do this together.

If you make a mess as a child, chances are your mother instructed you to clean up after yourself. Together, we need to clean up our mess and we need to be accountable for that mess we made.
