Well its nice to know that apapthy flourishs throughout the world when it comes to helping another who was in danger! Clearly, a percentage of the world's population are 'wasted space' in regard to choosing to put others in danger; but being a spectator to the event; as far as I'm concerned; is providing the 'wasted space' an endorsement of support for the action.
Being Apathic says: "I agee completely, but my public image & courage dictates that I must be seen as if I don't, so I'll pass the buck, be a witness, or ring the police!" Shame on you!
Like many; I could never Not Help someone in danger: In that way I honour a person who saved my life. By saying; "I Don't agree, we've had enough of this BS that provides Apathy an opportunity to flourish," we are allowing Empathy to be established.
Empathy leads to positive change and growth. Apathetic Bleating and Non Action merely serves to retard that change: Perhaps Apathy is also a declaration of fear of positive change.
Freedom is a state of mind. Protect your mind at any expense: Hell Yes... With Empathy.
