Accommodation Is Not a Shield From Criticism
When we talk about being challenged, of being criticized, of feeling vulnerable and of feeling weak, we often talk about accommodation. This is the act of giving up an option while maintaining a core group principle – in other words, the act of staying true to your core values while being open to new or different ideas, and accepting the criticisms that you receive.
Of course, accommodation is not a shield from criticism – it is often a weak response and it doesn’t deal with the root of the problem. To see this concept in more detail, an important distinction needs to be made.
An important distinction needs to be made between the act of accommodation and accommodation itself.
This is the act of giving up an option while maintaining a core group principle such as a core value or belief. The core group principle can be religious, political or of a personal nature.
Accommodation doesn’t mean giving up on an idea or idea – such as voting for no party in an election. Rather, accommodation is about giving up a group of options – like voting for different parties or not using the tax rate as your income tax. In other words, accommodation is a process of changing your core group principles and changing how you make decisions.
With respect to this last point, accommodation is not a decision for the sake of decision. It is a decision for the sake of the core group (such as your beliefs) and not for the sake of what someone (and perhaps not a specific person) might think. The importance of this distinction is that with accommodation, the decision not to vote or to pay more taxes may seem very different from accommodating someone who thinks that it is right for someone to pay a different tax rate, but it isn’t. In other words, the fact that accommodation provides an opportunity for different policies (a different voting choice or a different tax rate) is not the same as accommodation that takes money from the wealthy and gives it to the poor.
A common example
An example of accommodation is the idea that when we move from our core group to another group (such as immigrants), we should be more thankful and thankful for our new group, because it is a new group. This is a different example from accommodation, which is changing the core group. Also note that what we are talking about
