"Not My Problem"

Yes, it is. You just don't know it.

People have a specific group of people by nature that they care and worry about. And then there's things that "aren't their problem," but oftentimes actually are. The same idea stands when looking at "not in my backyard." It's not a problem if it's somewhere else, only if it impacts me.

I guess that's what love is: it being part of your "in group."

This is very human but what's killing us and our planet.

What an absurdly tragic species we would turn out to be if we literally successed ourselves to death.
