I'd like to ask you a simple question: Who is made responsible for Hitler? Ask anyone - especially a Brit or USian and he will tell you "the Germans". He was voted to office. There was a size-able opposition, namely from the Social Democrats (SPD) but ultimately everyone was responsible for the things that they didn't prevent.
You and your fellow countrymen/women ARE responsible. You personally didn't vote for X but it's your democratically elected government and you have to act to prevent the things done in your name. Even inaction makes you complicit.
So don't tell me, a german citizen, that you are not responsible for your government. You are. I'm being made responsible for a government my own great-grandfather didn't vote for!
