Diffusion Of Responsibility Theory
Responsibility theory is like human responsibility, social responsibility and is related to legal responsibility. It is an ethical theory that says, everyone has its responsibility and are accounted to the society whether an individual, a bigger one like a town, a company, or the government. It is of importance to basically magnify its simple principles. Social responsibility is the answer to the inquiries on why people are subjected and often times ending up in to blaming, admonishing, and punishing each other.
It is simply voluntary; it is on the subject of giving more than, further than and beyond what is called for by the law or the “legal responsibility”. Wherein you a person is accounted and responsible not because there exist a law, a rule, or an order from a higher being in position. There exists a basis of volunteerism. Diffusion of Responsibility Theory If you have a neighborhood or someone who is in trouble or in a snag and a group of people are standing, watching around, they usually tend to do nothing. This common scenario has been well studied.
Distinctively, the idea of diffusion of responsibility is merely cycling in this. The theory here is that responsibility diffuses or disperses across and among the group such that no individual could feel enough and aware himself enough to step forward and get involved. Some analogous situations may also occur like in situations in committees, when a thing has been existing around them waiting to be accomplished yet ignored after sometime, students are subjected to the establishment of blame, admonishment and punishment.
And in this case, responsibility theory has some noteworthy advantages. Social responsibility in a huge way is important for it is a principled, moral or ideological theory that a person whether it is an administration, a conglomerate, an organization or an individual has accountability to the society or the general public. This theory is voluntary: it is on the subject of giving more than, further than and beyond what is called for by the law. This “called for by the law” is simply the “legal responsibility” and this is somehow not in the boundaries of volunteerism principles.
Wherein you a person is accounted and responsible not because there exist a law, a rule, or an order from a higher being in position. In here, a person can’t promise a free accountability for his people. It is out of his deep willingness to do a certain thing and only accounted and responsible when he is obliged by something: for example, it could be a law or a rule. To explain this topic further, let us have this simple basis example. By law, a conglomerate’s or a corporation’s main responsibility is to produce money (income) as much as possible for shareholders and make it a point that they obey the law.
Social responsibility even with no contact onto the people involve, accompanies organizations being responsible for the people as well as for the environment they affect. This organizations or companies have the ethics, moral responsibility to do so with regards to their power and influence. They certainly have this dominance or power to help people or, could be at the least, not harm them. This responsibility theory is a principle of law that connoting every being whether it is a small group like village, town, or the big ones like companies, government or could be just an individual has its own accountability to the society.
In this responsibility theory, I couldn’t miss out mentioning these two universal rules because I believe it somehow relates each other and crosses each others’ principle. First is, The Golden Rule: Do unto others what you want others do unto you. And second, The Utilitarian Principle: here is where you behave in a way that could result in for the benefit of the greatest number and for the greatest good. The connection among them is like this.
Let’s say, some people emphasize that industries or companies have no responsibility (social responsibility) other than to augment their firms, enlarge returns, and abstain or desist from appealing in deception and fraud. It just means that the more they seek to maximize returns; they almost more often than not incidentally do what is good for the society. Building on the diffusion of the theory of responsibility and added subject matter- volunteerism, one way or another certainly it squabbles that a sense of responsibility originate transversely the personal and social domains of individuals who volunteer.
