individual responsibility

Saw this on a friends email, under the "thought for the day".  Attributed to former Senator Bill Bradley: 

A worker who doesn't give an honest day's work for a day's wage forfeits the moral claim he has on the company's management to treat him with respect.  
A manager who fires workers at the first hint of recession can't expect loyalty from those who remain.  
A television-network executive who exercises no judgment about the violence or hedonism of the network's programs can't escape the charge that he or she is contributing to national self-destruction.  
The newspaper publisher whose only concern is to print whatever sells loses the right to criticize politicians who pander to voters.  
Too many Americans abdicate their individual responsibility.
