        The problem is that there is no cure for apathy. It’s what killed the Soviet Union.

    The cure for general apathy is to quit rescuing those whose failure is only due to apathy. I know, harsh but also true.

      It’s also a way to spark revolution! Europe learned that lesson the hard way after the French monarchy disastrously adopted a similar attitude. That’s one significant factor leading to creation of the modern welfare state in the early 19th century. The United States learned the same lesson during the Great Depression and avoided a collapse. Now, that lesson has been largely disparaged amid a resurgence of hubris. As a result, another harsh history lesson in the follies of mankind may be waiting in the wings for an inauspicious moment to take center stage and, quite literally, steal the show.
