    The best thing I've ever found that fits whatever situation you are in is simply the Golden Rule: Do to others as you'd want them to do to you.

    And an explanation:

    Independent action -- I'd take that to mean that each person needs to act in socially responsible ways. The Golden Rule or Ethic of Reciprocity explains this well, too. Another way to think of this is that each person is responsible for his or her own actions.

    Thanks Writeacher. That helped me understand a little better how to answer social responsibility.

    Now, "Explain the importance of independent action?"

    How would I answer this question? What does it mean?

    Thanks.

    "Explain the importance of independent action?"

    This means to act on your own and follow what your conscience dictates to you. In other words, you don't necessarily follow the crowd, but act independently if you think the crowd is not doing the right thing. For instance, if you see a bully picking on a person, you could step in and help the victim, even though others are ignoring this action.
