Accountability is a problem in our time because people do not feel responsible. Whenever in the history of man men have lost faith in God, they have ceased to be accountable. Because accountability means that there is a chain of command, a chain of responsibility and a chain of authority. If you deny God, you are certainly, in time, going to deny every human authority. Then you will be accountable to no one.  This, of course, is now a matter of education.
