As the suffering increases so will the crimes

- People may say they care about the crime…
What kind of crime should you be most concerned about? The crimes against humanity or only the crimes that you think could affect you? You can only do so much to avoid crime. As the suffering increases so will the crimes.
People spend a lot of time and attention talking about crime, especially the high shock value crimes like murder, break-ins, attacks, and events that are abnormal like a bank heist. They talk about them with their spouse, their neighbors, the people they work with, and on the social media sites. Everybody gets excited about crime. Do they believe that by talking about it they can do something about anything that already happened? Will it change the outcome?
What about the crimes against humanity like poverty, hunger, lack of resources, diseases, and more. What about abandoning those in need? Try this, ask your co-workers if they’d like to talk about world hunger around the water cooler and see what kind of response you get. You will be surprised. They’d rather talk about a break-in or murder than people dying from a lack of food.
People may say they care about crimes against humanity, but they don’t do anything about it because it doesn’t affect them, so they think. It’s this kind of thinking that makes people callous to people’s suffering. If you believe that we are all connected wherever we live in this universe, you cannot and should not let even one person down.

COMMENTARY: There are three classes in our society; the poor, the middle-class, and the wealthy. The poor and the wealthy look out for each other and help each other when the need arises. However, the middle-class doesn’t do that. They wait until that fellow middle-class person, family, or business owner gets really desperate and then they offer them little or nothing for what they have left, picking them clean. The middle-class is more desperate and vulnerable than any other class in society.
