Dr. John Perkins :: What is our responsibility to the common good?

  • “You have to weigh decisions based on the question being asked,” says Dr. John M Perkins, author and speaker on issues of racial reconciliation and Christian community development. Some organizations, such as NGOs, are primarily private concerns and can take highly independent initiative. However, there is also room for common goods, under government responsibility, when it comes to public health and similar issues. However, we always have the responsibility to use our funds, votes, and witness to help manage the bigger issues. “We can’t take responsibility for certain things individually, because they are too big.”
