I have so many questions to your assumption that personal Responsibilities make us slaves. I could see that your idea of using confusion as a weapon more against someone that pushes their own self on you in order to control you to make you a slave may hold some merit but would not that confusion, in the stated issue be more of loving,and seeing clearly what another is trying to do? Hard to explain that but I sure cannot grasp your idea of personal responsibility making us slaves to ourselves. Little help here please.
My claim that responsibility is evil is really radical. The idea came to me based on how the word responsibility makes me feel. It's a total lack of peace! And it's the separate ego that is the cause of the inner conflict. The universe is already producing itself, including my ego, moment by moment. And when I separate myself into an ego having to deal with the rest of the universe I have made a logical mistake. Therefore instead of evil, responsibility can be called an error. Or we can even call it to miss the mark, to fail to act in wholeness, which also is the meaning of sin. So responsibility is a sin. See how brainwashed we have been by our stupid society! Everybody running around parroting the lie that responsibility is something good, and telling themselves and others to be responsible. You may call responsibility good, but it ain't gonna feel good. And there's you clue to the reality of the situation.
I found that this discovery is not new:
"Responsibility is selfishness. You are responsible to yours, are you not? You have duty to yours. You say, "I must consider my child, my wife, my possessions, and therefore I am responsible." Whereas, I am talking of freedom in which there is no distinction of "yours" and "mine" and therefore neither responsibility nor its opposite. The more you set yourself up as being responsible for the welfare of man and society, for the furthering of a system, the more self-centered, narrow, bigoted you become." -- J. Krishnamurti
