Do people within a society have the responsibility to try to contribute and protect society to their best?
Is it wrong to live selfishly from one day to the next (i.e. that brilliant guy who works as a construction worker), or is it one's duty to try to contribute the best they can to society?

I believe in that to an extent. I also believe that if you are of no use to a society, you shouldn't do anything.


I think people should contribute as much as they can whenever they can. If they choose not to, that is their choice and let their choice be their choice and only that. How I see the whole situation anyways.

I buy liquor for underage teens.

I contribute to the fun of others. Therefore, I am not selfish.

I think if they want use of the rights that a society gives someone, whatever they may be in accordance to that society, then they should contribute.

I don't think everyone has a responsibility to try and protect society. That is what law enforcement, government, etc is for. Thats just my opinion though

IMO it should be - not what you can do for your country, but what your country can do for you. If you look at this in a war time perspective, you can fight for your country, and your country can sen you to your death in your return. Veterans are being highly underapreciated and what do you really get back for doing something for your country.
I think your country should make sure that it's worth doing something for, by doing something for you.

I think if everyone took a second to do a single selfless act daily we could x out half of the taxes we have to pay for gov't systems that don't get the job done and cost way too much to begin with.

I'm an artist, and I work IT. I don't feel like I've cheated society by not pursuing my art, I do feel that taking care of yourself (not relying on welfare, working, buying domestic vehicles if possible) are all things people should do to contribute.

It should go both ways, your country shouldl ead you in the right direction, and then the people should contribute based on direction given... I think you have a good point though.

You gain freedom, everyone gained freedom and rights from those veterans who fought. That seems like a fairly good trade-off, I agree with a lot of veterans being neglected...It's unfair, they did a lot more than any movie star ever did for their country. Wrong values

Construction workers are a vital part of society, not a desirable job but someone has to u know, go out and build the shit the richer more "qualified" people work in.

but, should a person who is capable of much more than working at a construction site do work that most people can do, or use his unique talents to bring society forward?
