Why should I care?
Anthropologists say there are five different races, I am not an anthropologist, why should I care. Besides, nobody gets to choose their ancestors.
Ben and Jerry want to get married. Are they going to keep making vanilla cherry ice cream? Then why should I care.
Every day we are faced with questions and situations that are or seemlingly are of great concerns to all of society. Now some people are truly conflicted and I am not sure why. I can do nothing about your race. And I wasn't invited to the nuptuals.
There are wars going on all over the world. Nobody called and asked if I thought an invasion was a good idea.
Now, I see many people gather into demonstrations, parade up and down the streets and carry banners for causes that they have no influence. I have been told it makess them feel good, but why should I care. Should I be bothered about things over which I have no control?
What is more mystifying is that people acost me...I am not all in knots over their cause. Then, I ask them "why should I care". They go apoplexic, but don't really have an answer. I say that I have only so much real concern to express and I don't want to waste it on things I can't control or effect.
So why should I care?
