I don’t know why the American people are outraged.

‘What can I do?’ is a totally wrong question, you can’t do a thing when you put the question that way. But you can, when you actually see… actually see that each one of us is responsible for the war that is going on in the Far East, and that it is not the Americans, nor the Vietnamese, nor the Communists, but you and I who are responsible, actually, desperately responsible for what is going on in the world, not only there but everywhere. We are responsible for the politicians, whom we have brought into being, responsible for the army which is trained to kill, responsible for all our actions, conscious or unconscious. — Krishnamurti, Talks in Europe 1968, Social Responsibility
