Individual or Collective Responsibility?

What is the difference between individual and collective responsibility?

In a nutshell.. Collective responsibility means everyone is responsible for and required to suffer the consequences for the actions of anyone and everyone else; Individual responsibility means no one but the person responsible will suffer the consequences of his or her actions.

Collective responsibility is nasty.  And presupposes that none of us own ourselves as free, independent individuals.” – RTWT
