Taking responsibility...

I'm really liking the take on responsibility in this video:

Quotes that jump out at me:
All of us in our society have to take responsibility for what we find in front of us
If I see a set of social conditions that have been handed to me, and which not only did wrong by others but elevated me and give me advantage that I did not earn, it's not about beating myself up - I'm not responsible for that having happened, I'm not to blame for it, so guilt is totally unproductive, but, in order to live an ethical life, it seems to me, to live ethically and responsibly, I have to take some responsibility for the unearned advantage.
