There are many different stages of life, not everyone can ‘stand up’ and nor should they. Nor is everyone meant to ‘lead’. But I think we are deeply wrong when we see true hurt, can do something about it, but just close our eyes and refuse to act, to heal or to protect, and place our own interests so much above wider interests. That is the true meaning of the irresponsible and the disconnected. That is what happens in corporations too that led to real life stories like Erin Brokavich and the threat to people who cannot defend themselves.
