Do you understand this distinction?

Now, let’s explore the concept of responsibility. We are in a state of responsibility almost anytime we independently make a decision. This may sound like semantics, but if a distinction between cause and responsibility can be made, this distinction will affect the decisions we make. This is due to the fact that we will then be more likely to be aware of what we do, and will feel greater accountability for the results of the choices we make.
