For even the best of us in humanity... most of the time, unless something -directly- affects us, we are not inclined to do much about something.
Most people are not trained to see others' suffering as -directly- affecting themselves.
And really, you have to suffer pretty badly before you start to see it in other people as clearly as you should. Though some people, when they are
pulled out of the lava, they are just glad to be out of the lava and they'll run the other direction with their back turned on any that need help for
fear of falling back in.
Of course, they deserve the lava again.
In my experience, I believe if we were left up to chance alone, that the odds of you meeting an individual that actually cared about -you- instead of
how you affect them, is about 1 in 50,000.
Out of those other 49,999, about 100 of them will care about you and also how you affect them at the same time, having a battle within themselves.
The other 49,899 people are stumbling blocks and tests for the rest of us; they're not sheep. They're goats to be herded. Everyone is ramming each
other in the head to get past the next one.
So then you must also consider that the of the 60,000-100,000 decent people that live in the United States of America, you will also find within THAT
group a set of people that decide, because of how hard it has been for themselves also, "I care about these people. But I think the best thing for
these people is that they are going to have to suffer their own stupidity."
So then you are reduced to about 30,000-50,000 decent people actively trying.
And of those, about 75% do not have much money (or prefer to act like they do not), and also have other problems that are enslaving them to some other
problem; to which they must continue to apply because they keep leaving their problem to help someone else in -their- problem.
So then you only have about 7,500 - 12,500 decent people trying to help around 300-400,000,000 in the United States alone.
So there are enough decent people to plant in every major county in the United States.
So you have one Voice crying out in the wilderness in each of your county seats, I bet.
And you're ignoring -those- that know how to help you.
And so because Mark Levin decides to do the one thing he is able to be impassioned about, how could anyone have a problem?
This country is so pathetic because all of the goats say that the government has too much power or doesn't give enough. But then people sit around
and wait for the next Hitler to pop up and to do something about it all!
And then when one does pop up, you ream him out, too!
You...are... weird people.
And this is the intelligent community. Awesome.
Of course, the rest of the world counts, too, but I haven't been outside of the continential US, so I cannot say for sure what the ratio to decent
people per goats is. That would be a bit to assume for me. The numbers were quite assumed for the West Coast as to the East Coast experience I have
at any rate.
