I'm not saying that we should completely ignore the plights of others. What I am saying is that our primary focus should be on our plight, not others
Adding this to what you're saying. It’s a given. Effective State-sponsored terrorism in the form of corporate-owned concentration camps defines wrong. We know that 4 out of 5 black people in jail are there for victimless drug-use crimes. Take the profit and influence away and you could let 4 out of 5 walk and put them on parole. Too expensive! Corporations are getting rich by the head-count. Billions would be lost. And we know, concentration camps spill out more and more prison culture into the hood.
A comment on some of what you’re saying.I agree but if we generally care about the plight of others, that is focusing on our own plight. First you have to cut through all the bullshit lies and care about yourself. I got that. If we’re struggling with that, and we are, we can’t focus care on others.
Here’s the thing. If you care for others that automatically means you care for yourself. It means that you’ve had some healing, been made whole (no longer stuck in a mental or prison hole). It’s a human and spiritual level (not a philosophical or organized religion level). As much as we can possibly include some universal compassion, that defines right.
