Mr. Hsiung,
You wrote,[...with power comes {responsibility}...].
I am unsure as to what you are wanting to include as a {responsibility} here. Could you post here a list of identifications of some of the responsibilities that you are referring to? If you could, then I could have the opportunity to respond accordingly.
