I may be missing something, because I don't see how it's possible to control an infinite number of me's across the universe without essentially being God. Or why on earth you'd be responsible for the choices of yourself in another universe, or why they're all considered the same 'you'.

I think the point being made was that at any given point that you experienced as a choice there actually wasn't a choice, because the you (at that instant) chose every possible alternative. Each alternative spawned a new universe in which there is a version of you (assuming a non-lethal choice) who remembers making only the choice that their universe is founded on, just as you remember choosing only a single outcome.

Stupidity cannot be cured. Stupidity is the only universal capital crime. The sentence is death. There is no appeal and sentence is carried out automatically and without pity. Lazarus Long.
