Sometimes when you care and stand for whats right the victim will team up with the bad guy that's beating them and call the law.

After they agreed they'd help you, help them.

So who cares?

Incase you need this explained. Imagine a cheating g/f got put in the hospital b her b/f she put a restraining order on him.

You have had problems with the guy in the past and saw this as opportunity to get your hands dirty. You made it publicly clear you are going out of your way to help her. He finds out blackmails her in helping him violate his protection order.

Comes out a with a metal pipe and realizes you don't care but ain't about to get beat without a fair fight. Has g/f call the cops and file a false report on you.

She deserved to get beat and anything she gets int he future who cares. No matter how bad someone beats you they are beatable.

All she would need is someone whose not afraid of him and cops.

So people who care are just as blind as those who don't.

I understood what you were getting at up until this.

Sorry if I sound rude... but you seem to be one of the people my OP is talking about. You seem to say "who cares" a lot, and throw scenarios around, and piece together threads of circumstance to make it sound like it doesn't matter weather you "care" about things or not.

Well, let me give you a scenario.

You have a child.

A baby boy that's the pride of your life.

You never thought you'd care about anything outside of yourself again after how badly you've been hurt throughout your life, but this baby boy brought you back to feeling, to emotion, to life.

Then, one day, when he's six years old, he falls while he's playing outside and breaks his leg.

You see this happen.

At that point, you ought to ask yourself again what difference it makes if you "care" or not. Because if you don't, then you won't be there to pick him up, take him to the hospital, and cheer him up after seeing him grovel in tears.

I've known people who's parents see them hurt, or hit by a car, and they just stand in the doorway of their house and call 9/11 out of obligation. They don't check to see if their child is okay. They don't seem to care at all.

You see?

People who care are, in fact, NOT blind.

Quite the opposite.

Sooner or later, you HAVE to care.

Weather it hurts or not.

Think about it a bit.

Look to root causes and common denominators. Work towards an ideal, rather than taking part in the paradigm that currently exists (of course you have to recognize the paradigm first, which can be tricky).

Its a Complex System, and in that, can be VERY tricky in how we approach solutions that actually solve problems instead of having our "solution" just swing back and smack us in the face.

It gets even trickier if you try to include the variable that this paradigm is intentionally propped up and propagated due to those who benefit from it the most.
