In the modern capitalist patriarchal empire the term 'responsibility' is defined as: a heavy burden, making you guilty, being blamed, having to pay, and being punished.
Since the way to make 'profit' in modern culture is to externalize your costs (to society at large, to third world countries, to the environment, or to future generations). In modern culture, taking responsibility is seen as being stupid, to be avoided.
In next culture, archearchy (the culture of archetypally initiated women creatively collaborating with archetypally initiated men) the term 'responsibility' is defined as:
...being the source, being at cause, taking a stand, showing up, navigating the space, choosing the way, inventing new options, being fully involved, engaging presence, serving transformation.
