The true measure of a society is how it treats those who are most vulnerable. In order for a modern society to function, this must be accepted as the most basic philosophy. Services must be delivered equally to all sections of society without favour, and those who are vulnerable – elderly, infirm, and disabled people – must be cared for by the whole of society.
Though people often say them, and even believe in them, these are powerful words not always backed by action and intent. In a modern society where all people are to be valued, it is necessary to grant mobility to those who cannot walk, and to grant access to those who are disenfranchised. Through these basic values, the community prospers and fear is replaced by compassion.
