Are individuals responsible for the consequences of actions taken by their community? What about their community's inaction or its attitudes? In this work, the author departs from the traditional Western view that moral responsibility is limited to the consequences of overt individual action. Drawing on the insights of Arendt, Jaspers and Sartre, he argues that even when individuals are not direct participants, they share responsibility for various harms perpetrated by their communities.
