Dialectic of individual responsibility and cooperation

I see the two as leading into each other ideally. A person acts responsibly as an individual, which leads into work that involves other people, which leads to cooperation, which then leads to acting as a responsible individual within a group, which leads to more cooperation. This is a way of conceiving a constant process, but I think that the two poles exist within a dialectical tension to one another, where each side is not complete in itself but ultimately gives way for the other side to work.
