Life is so comfortable nowadays - and that is the main reason for such large scale apathy.
People do not really care about wars overseas as long as they still have food on the table, warm and comfortable homes, electricity, central heating, healthcare, etc etc.
It is an unpalatable truth to many but unfortunately the truth it is.
I think it's far more unhealthy to not have any concepts of good and evil, and just make excuses for the evils of the world until it finally wipes us out.
Living in a world of no right and wrong, just power and powerlessness. That's a crappy world to be in, look around at the areas outside of the decaying "First world" and see what's coming.
But it's not Evil. It just is? I'd rather have some semblance of reference point to go on with my moral compass.

What scares me is the generation before mine, because I don't think we could wake them up even if we wanted.
