You cannot induce collective responsibility by centering on individual responsibility.

Why not? Is it unjust? mean? demonstrably ineffective?

And how do you induce collective responsibility without inducing personal responsibility? What does that look like?

Individual responsibility is correlated with collective responsibility, undeniably: one can simply look at the sorts of people who tend to volunteer, get involved, organize charities, and go into local politics ... generally what you would call "responsible" people (if not necessarily in all ways admirable). I speak of generalities and tendencies only, of course.

It certainly feels to me as if a sense of personal responsibility comes first, and responsibility for the group comes afterwards - in general; for most people; speaking broadly.
