What is the entire universe made of? Matter. What is matter made of? Energy. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but only change molecular structure...Physics 101. Energy is everywhere, in all things, has always been, will always be. Energy= God. To get closer to the point...intelligent energy=God.
So, if everything in the universe is made of "God" ...aka energy. We collectively are God. We are all One. Thereby, God doesn't interfere because "he" would be only interfering with himself.
You can also look at this way. There is nothing in this life here on Earth that can happen to you that is "bad". Why? Because nothing that happens can harm you..the true you... the SELF made of energy. Energy can't be created or destroyed. When you "die" your energy (soul) is still there, not harmed...everything happening in your life while you incarnated is but to experience that which you already know. Those "children" are small new bodies, but the energy inside (soul) is as ancient as the cosmos and has lived many lives and experienced many "bad" things. When go back home (die) its really birth back into your real world. Here on earth...incarnating is the illusion. So there nothing for God to intervene with...when nothing truly hurts you.

Only God knows the answer to the OP's question. Personally, I don't think that mankind can understand God's plan completely. I have faith that God does have a plan though. Faith is that which people have, when there is a lack of scientific or other "PROOF". It can't be debated, proven or dis-proven.

Not only is it unnecessary, I don't think God is able to deal with everyone.
If a farmer owns a plantation and plants a lot of crops, he hopes most of the crops reap their fruits, but some of them are bound to fail, and the farmer can't spend too much time worrying about each individual crop. I think God is the same way.
