while "all the things" is currently a meme, it's not really standard English

Would "everything" be better?

Everything, or maybe "all things". "all things" is kind of literary, but both work.

I wonder where the sentence came from, since 'things' is so general as to be meaningless. I would expect (in both languages) some other word like consequences or results.

100% agreed: conséquences or résultats.

"ALL THE THINGS!" hahaha. I had to laugh a little. Yes, I have to agree with lolaphilologist. Everything or all things sounds more normal in English.

Actually, the french sentence doesn't sound natural at all either.

Right; I would say something like: "en agissant seul, il doit seul en assumer les conséquences"
