Is it a choice or responsibility to look after one another?

Every day we're busy with our own life that we often overlook other peoples' concern. They said we should only mind our own business and let other people do whatever they like with their life. Do you think it is our choice or a responsibility to take care one another?

Hi careguarden, it is our responsibility to take care with one another. All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. This has to be so because we humans are social beings. We come into the world as the result of other's actions. We survive here in dependence on others. Whether we like it or not, there is hardly a moment of our lives when we do not benefit from other's activities. For this reason it is hardly surprising that most of our happiness arises in the context of our relationships with others. Nor is it so remarkable that our greatest joy should come when we are motivated by concern for others.
