Social Responsibility?

What social responsibility? You ask.

So long we are members to a group,  whether local community, city, state, country, or the world, for that matter, we have social responsibility to each other.  Why? Life is made of gives and takes.  If everyone only takes without giving, there won’t be much of a group to speak of. 

Not for long, anyway.

Clearly, the purpose of social responsibility is for the greater good and beyond self interests. Driving on your side of the line, cleaning up your surrounding, and voting for your local school board election are examples of assuming this social responsibility.  It is our de facto membership criterion and the common bond.

When someone ignore their share of the social responsibility, they are being narrow minded or simply selfish.  Case in point – telling someone to go back to where they came from is based on a narrowly defined “self interest” – the belief that you are taking resource away from me.  

But as socially responsible members, we all should be on guard of those who only act on their self interest.

What do you see as your social responsibility?
