Every democratic society, seems to be built on the legal principle of…..
“Innocent until proven guilty”.
So, even within business and personal relationships this mantra should apply.
We are all innocent until proven guilty and should not be quick to judge.
But we do also have the right to prove someone’s guilt.
That is, to be making sure of someone’s innocence.
At any time the tax office can ask for the evidence of income and expenses for your last tax return but generally presumes you honesty or innocence.
We too must generally assume our loved one’s innocence and integrity but at anytime we have the right to question their statements when we feel that something is not adding up.
So, remember, we all have the right to the presumption of innocence AND also the right to prove their guilt or of making sure of their innocence…..maybe.
