As a member of society, should we be able to count on one another in a time of need? Do we all owe a sense of responsibility toward one another, or should we all stay within in our own little world and keep to ourselves. What is your viewpoint on social responsibility and how we can benefit from it or your views on every man for themselves?

"should we all stay within in our own little world and keep to ourselves." This one.

"your views on every man for themselves?" Yes

Social isolation is always a positive influence on a person's life. That's why everybody likes spiders.

Humans just like our closet relative species, monkeys, are social creatures. Being in isolation is dangerous to the human mind. I believe as human beings we do hold a sense of responsibility to take care of each other by doing our part to see the society as a whole is relatively safe. Just like a group of meerkats and monkeys signaling danger when danger arrives, we too should fight against the wicked and help to those in need, it's our social responsibility.

No, we should be the wicked. Hiding behind trees and jumping out at people. Remember "Nice guys finish last.Leo Durocher

Judging by your answer, I would presume, you haven't been put in a situation where you could have helped someone in need or you were put in a situation and no one helped you in need, thus having a perception of being the wicked against your community. Imagine you are walking, not armed or haven't taken martial arts and all of sudden your victim of a robbery in a shopping mall, you screamed for help and everyone stood by and watched you become another statistic. However, put yourself in that same situation and a patron helps you in need, not only do you have the satisfaction of not becoming another stat, but the satisfaction that someone's got your back, the true definition of social responsibility and our responsibility as humans.

Be careful who answers when you scream for help. Time and time again humans have been shown not to be trustworthy.

I apologize, the point of this debate, is do we as humans hold a sense of social responsibility to our community and to ensure everyone is basically looked after, or should we be exercising the "everyman for themselves", way of thinking?

The con would be every man for themselves and everyone should worry about themselves and no on else.
