Can someone please explain the importance of social responsibility and independent action to me?
Social responsibility means we have a responsibility to our fellow human beings. Where would we be if we didn't help others? Children would grow up without a community to watch, protect and care for them. African-Americans and women would still be second or third class citizens. Social responsibility is responsible for tax dollars paying for education for everyone, health care for the poor, law enforcement, streets and roads, and other government services.
Where would the world be if courageous people hadn't taken independent action? Think about Rosa Park, Martin Luther King, Martin Luther, and many other heroes. Where would we be if someone didn't stand up for a victim of playground bullying?
