Q: What is responsibility in human relationship?

What is your responsibility for human growth, human culture, human goodness? What is your responsibility to the earth?

When you feel responsible for a child there is a flowering of real affection and care and you don't train him or condition him to kill another for the sake of your country.

Human beings are now conditioned to be irresponsible. What are the serious people going to do with the irresponsible people?

If you show me how irresponsible I am, what responsibility means, you care for me. When there is total responsibility in which freedom and care go together, the mind has no image in relationship.
