This chapter discusses issues concerning the future of social responsibility. It suggests that the experience of Liverpool in the twentieth century validates the importance of principle of the right to social responsibility as a fundamental attribute of universal citizenship. It also contends that the time has come for the creation of a new welfare society in which the welfare state will be the instrument and in which those emancipation privileges will become the daily experience of every citizen.
