Passing the buck: Do we all pass the buck at one time or another?

This is actually in reference to conversations either one on one or over the net like through sites like Ted to do with how we react to each other, when we cross swords or butt heads together is it our doing or is it the person we are in conversation with as some disagreements can get out of hand? I think it’s ours!!

      I think it's become accepted like lying which is a shame because it doesn't have to be that way, it seems strange that we don't want to be responsible anymore, an irresponsible society is a chaotic society. Don't get me wrong I also pass the buck especially when OI lock horns with someone as I tend to blame them for the disagreement.
