From this perspective, it is a system of principles and judgments shared by cultural, religious and philosophical, beliefs and concepts which determines whether given actions are right or wrong. These concepts are generalized and often codified by a culture or a group, and thus serve to regulate the behavior of its members. Conformity to such codification of morality can be also called him and the Group may depend on a broad conformity to such codes for its lasting existence. From the point of view of social organization, moral responsibility is different from legal responsibility for its internal character. Moral responsibility refers mainly to the internal character of conduct (awareness or intention of whom acted), regardless of external aspects such as the fact that these have been discovered or sanctioned. On the contrary, the legal processes are not necessarily processes of intention (for example, the prescription of the crime of robbery by the mere passage of time can invalidate legal responsibility without invalidating the moral responsibility).
Moral responsibility occupies an increasingly important place in public opinion when the awarding of legal responsibility through the courts is insufficient to close cases such as, for example, scandals of corruption linked to concealment of figures in the accounts of companies, embezzlement, spillage of oil in natural areas, illegal financing of campaigns and scandals of political corruption. Gonzalo Retamal finally tells us with respect to the responsibility that this has a direct effect on other fundamental concept: confidence. We hope those who are responsible. We put our faith and loyalty in those who deliver what they have promised in a stable manner. Responsibility is a sign of maturity, fulfilling an obligation of any kind is not usually something pleasant, because it implies effort. In the case of the plumber, must take the trouble to do a good job. Carpenter has to stop doing that occupation or taste to go to someone’s House to finish a work assignment.
The responsibility can seem a burden, and failure to comply with a promise originates consequences. When someone falls on irresponsibility, we can easily stop trusting the person. On the personal level, that husband who decides to spend some time with a woman who recently met at a Convention and the wife learns, confidence will be undone, because the husband did not have the ability to deliver on its promise of fidelity. And it is that it is easy to fall into the temptation of el capricho and immediate welfare. The husband may prefer the immediate joy of a conquest, and forget that long-term, their marriage is more important. The origin of irresponsibility is given the lack of properly ordered priorities. For example, Carpenter was not to paint the door because became his friend and they decided to take a few beers instead of going to fulfill the commitment of painting a door. The Carpenter has evil arranged its priorities, for a beer is something unimportant that might well expect, but this man (and perhaps your family), depends on your work.
