Admitting mistakes

What we hear and see a lot these days is “let us move on and focus on…” when a problem or mistake is addressed. Especially in politics. This basically says “don’t bother me with the consequences of what I did” and it also says “I do not feel accountable and do not want to be held accountable”. A direct consequence is the very high likelihood of repeating the same mistakes without learning and without correcting the wrong. I always compare it to taking a wrong turn along the road and just keep going because you don’t want to accept responsibility for that mistake.
