Do you think people have lost touch with the idea of personal responsibility? Why or why not?


Yesterday I asked a question about blaming rape victims and someone made a very interesting point about how people frown upon personal responsibility. While no one deserves to be violated in ways such as sexual assault or robbery, we each have a personal responsibility to take actions to protect ourselves. When people put themselves in harms way, there is some bad decision making that can lead to being victimized. What are your thoughts on this subject.

    This reminds me of a book entitled "The Power of Fear." It details this concept that inside ourselves, we know when danger lurks and our true problem is ignoring that voice. It's a touchy subject, I think, because so many people have been victimized.

    This is really excellent and well thought out. As a matter of personal responsibility, we must always look at the part we play in the outcomes of our lives. No, life is not fair and lots of things happen to all people but we do have many choices.
