The early discussion centered on social welfare. That is one facet of personal responsibility.

Internally personal responsibility may be a philosophy or state of mind but in the context of citizenship it is the sphere of events that result from ones actions - those things over which one has authority.


Open mine and well shafts are an ever present danger. In the case above, the original owner abandoned the mine shaft without closing the opening. Is he personally responsible for the death?
