NOBLESSE OBLIGE: THE DUTY OF THE ELITE: A RECIPROCITY
“Noblesse oblige” is generally used to imply that with wealth, power, and prestige come responsibilities.
In ethical discussion, “Noblesse oblige” summarizes a moral economy wherein privilege (ability and achievement) must be balanced by duty towards those who lack such privilege ability and (achievement) or who cannot perform such duty.
Finally, it has been used recently primarily to refer to public responsibilities of the rich, famous and powerful, notably to provide good examples of behaviour or to exceed minimal standards of decency.
It has also been used to describe a person taking the blame for something in order to solve an issue or save someone else.
