    So what word should I use?

    1. Guilty by association
    2. Responsible
    3. Gullible
    4. Collaboration (as in Nazi collaborator)
    5. Willfully blind
    6. Wilfully deaf
    7. Lazy
    8. Coward

    What fits the bill? All these people making a system that does so much harm to the people we love because everyone else just goes along with the system. There is no end of website sites that you can write your angry words on but where is the action that should follow - lost because the enemy is too big, it is the very way we live our lives protecting those we love and neglecting those we do not.

    Right now 'money' is a worldwide connected system that all have access too provided of course you pay the charges and you have some 'money' in the first place.

    State systems do not have enough 'money' to do a good job, let alone the job you would like to do for your loved one. This is because the taxes are not high enough, because nobody wants to work and give up their money, so there is no will in the Government to raise taxes. This ensures that the police are not able to catch criminals, medical aid is not available for the sick, schools are mediocre but most of all ensures other people suffer.

    Look at the massive amounts of money the Governments armed forces consume ESPECIALLY during war time. The slowdown (recession) in the west is due to 'money' moving to China and the East as this is where the BIG BUCKS can be made. 'Money' has no love nor loyalty and will move people to do great harm just to get more or hold on to what they have. Your Government has gone into debt to fight its wars since 'money' became THE force of control (many hundreds/thousands of years ago).

    When your country goes to war, your own countrymen WILL die, your country intends to KILL other people and innocents will be HARMED.

    This is in fact a legitimate phrase 'chosen dependency' but not normally used outside of medical journals.

    Nothing. There is no necessary connection between dependency and culpability.

    This expresses a very different idea; that the actions of governments demand that we oppose them.

    We are obliged to oppose evil, but even if we do not, that does not make us culpable for state actions.
