DEFINITIONS: TOLERANCE VS FORBEARANCE
by Luke Weinhagen
The distinction between tolerance and forbearance.
TOLERANCE: allowing costs to be assessed against non-consenting parties as ambiguity makes it unclear what additional party is specifically responsible for costs.
– It is a passive state.
– No agency.
FORBEARANCE: intentionally taking responsibility for a cost to allow someone else not to. (example: my children, my disabled kin, my employee that has not matured fully yet).
– It is an active state.
– Allows agency.
