Responsibility

by Tom Swift

As any change must begin somewhere, it is the single individual who will undergo it and carry it through. The change must begin with one individual; it might be any one of us. Nobody can afford to look around and to wait for somebody else to do what he is loath to do himself. As nobody knows what he could do, he might be bold enough to ask himself whether by any chance his unconscious might know something helpful, when there is no satisfactory answer anywhere in sight. Man today is painfully aware of the fact that neither his great religions or his various philosophies seem to provide him with those powerful ideas that would give him the certainty and security he needs in the face of the present condition of the world.

-C.G. Jung, The Undiscovered Self (1957)
