legitimacy is banned in the variation of definitions from one society to the next Another strength is that social action recognises the flexible nature of meanings.

Although society needs “more accountability, not less”, the accountability they need is not rising to be hypocrites. While others believe that the accountability needed is in receiving zero forgiveness for any mistake, society needs to not turn their heads and ignore those who have done wrong. Society needs to open the door of forgiveness instead of being hypocrites who draw on scornful responses to mistakes they have done before like they eventually did with Malcolm X who reaccumulated into society. Those who hated Malcolm were hypocrites who couldn’t look past the color of his skin. Hypocrisy is found in society and is the root of the problems regarding hateful actions to forgiving situations.
