What is causing so many people in this world to just not care about the consequences of their actions? One explanation is ignorance. This is acceptable to me when the person has no choice in the matter. The one thing that to me is simply unacceptable is apathy. That is lack of care after knowing the facts. What disturbs me is that this seems desperately close to stupidity. Stupidity is doing what you know is wrong or won’t work even though you know the factors. With apathy, this goes somewhat beyond this because it is lack of care about the subject. I don’t know if my theory is right but I think that apathy comes from trying to avoid pain. Yet in trying to avoid pain, one generally causes it in greater amounts. Apathy is the most dangerous agent in our world in my opinion. That is because if we don’t care about consequences we won’t learn from our mistakes. Without learning and adapting, we cannot survive. In essence apathy is counterproductive to survival. The more we care, the more we will strive to know, the more we know, the better we can survive. Please if you feel apathetic, examine what it is causing this because it could be you are holding yourself back.
