Do you think everyone is responsible for their own actions? Not blame other things whether they are or aren't influenced... Everyone has a mind of their own and to say it was so and so's fault that I'm like this or blame someone else such as you for the way others are being?... Who's really at fault? Self or others for a personal action whether done unintentionally or intentionally.
Better than deserved, as ALWAYS.

As you know me, I believe we are all responsible for our actions. Many times, the Bible teaches that all chose their own way.

Exactly... But some people think differently or blame another for they way a sibling or friend turned out because supposedly it's your fault kinda thing.

It's not your fault, they simply refuse to take responsibility for their actions.

I take responsibility for everything. I put the weight of the world on my shoulders. I even blamed myself for 9/11.

My Narcissism and high view of myself forces me to accept blame for absolutely everything. The blame is internal. I at times may project something different.

What's scary is that, if a causal determinist view of the world holds true, technically we aren't at fault or responsible for our actions because we aren't in control of them. In fact, the concept of "self" itself -- no pun intended -- virtually dissipates without free will.

But I'm sure that wasn't you're getting at and I'm doing nothing more now than trolling.
