A responsible being would be incapable of harming anything or anyone.
The biggest responsibility is with yourself
Being responsible is to fulfill our duties. We all claim rights, but we forget that we also have duties.
Being responsible is not excusing ourselves, but taking charge of our actions, assuming them in a mature context.
Responsibility requires that no harm be done to anything external or internal, that is, that does not harm others, the environment, ourselves, our health.
The most important thing is to be responsible with yourself. If one is responsible to himself, he will be responsible to others. For there to be an authentic responsibility on oneself, there would have to be an intense work on one’s own psychology, in the sense of not accepting negative emotions or satisfying the legions of disordered desires and low passions, because obviously, serious mistakes will be made with the own being and with all those around him.
If in this society each individual proposed to work to become a responsible person, there would be no need for armies, police and government repression.Even, there would be no need for an external government, because each one could govern himself.
