Responsibility and Power
The relationship between power and responsibility is a very important concept that
people need to understand. In the modern time, the notion that is commonly used is that where
there is power, comes great responsibility. The main empowerment comes from knowledge and
one must be responsible for knowledge. Responsibility has also been related to enormous selfcontrol, discipline, and self-restraint. Responsibility, to an ordinary person, maybe a burden.
However, with the right person being handed a certain responsibility, it tends to become a source
of protection. When it comes to the relationship between power and responsibility, different
people would argue differently about the concept. For example, Nietzsche would have a different
point of view from a Biblical way of thinking.
Nietzsche’s Point of View
Today, responsibility in the world can be thought in two ways. The first way is in a nonmoral sense. In this case, the occurrence of one event causes another event hence making one
event responsible for another. For example, the rising and setting of the sun are because of
earth’s rotation. Therefore, the rotation of the earth is responsible for the rising and setting of the
sun. When we look at responsibility in a moral sense, an individual is held responsible for an
unjust action if the person is the reason why the unjust action happened and the person had the
freedom to do otherwise. In this case, freedom is a form of power and the link with responsibility
can be clearly seen
Nietzsche, however, does not believe in this kind of thinking when power and
responsibility (Nietzsche, 2017). On the other hand, Nietzsche makes an argument that power or
freedom and responsibility tend to be grounded in a unified will. For this matter, the will is
unified by a particular set of dominating instincts. I feel like the basic argument or response that
Nietzsche would give regarding the relationship between power and responsibility is that the will
unifying process is one of the most fundamental endeavors of man. By “will unification”
Nietzsche refers to the ordering as well as the ranking of a person’s values.
Biblical Point of View
The basis of how Jesus’ would pose an argument should be relatable to the various
instances where the Bible takes about power and responsibilities. For example, Romans 14:15-16
talks about responsibility saying that “For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no
