1. What is an individual's responsibility to a community?
An individual's responsibility is to care about those who live and work within the community. For example in the novel, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, Piggy demonstrates this characteristic of caring about the boys on the island. He not only wants to know all of the boys' names, he notices the missing boy at the end of chapter 2. He says, "'That little 'un that had a mark on his face--where is--he now? I tell you I don't see him'" (46). Piggy's nature is to show concern for those around him, and this is how human beings should act toward the people in their communities.
