I completely agree with Miguel:
I cannot risk having a mob come after my family because I did something to save a life that some butt-hurt “internet influencer” found despicable. Suddenly I am the most hated person in the world and have people coming after to exact whatever deluded brand of vengeful justice they think I deserve.
I used to criticize people just standing around and doing nothing when someone nearby is in need…especially in a violent confrontation.
Not any more. Miguel has hit it on the head. The incident in Ohio completely confirms it. We’ve had an issue for a long time with people getting sued for trying to be helpful. Or stopping to help someone on the side of the road and getting robbed for their trouble. Now even the cops can’t intervene to save someone’s life without being called a murderer.
The mob is insane and it will destroy you on a whim.
No more. I take care of myself and my family. That’s my responsibility. You and your family are your responsibility.
A dog eat dog, every man for himself world is an unkind and often brutal place to live, but that’s the world our society has created. We’ve proven ourselves completely incapable of changing it, so I guess we now just have to live in it as best we can.
