For example, the head of a country who believes in his people's right of free speech, including those of critics or activists who strongly denounce his leadership, but will not do anything to curtail that right even if it threatens to cut his reign short.
Or a parent who believes experience is the best teacher and lets their kids learn through mistakes and failure, so does not do anything—lectures, physical punishment, etc. Short of risking imminent, permanent harm to the children, they allow almost anything even if their kids might become headaches later on (develop bratty behavior, resentful, etc).
In short, people who believe consequences are worth the risk if the principle is preserved.
Thank you in advance.
