    Default A safe distance from tragic events

    Do you think you'd act more constructively if you didn't have a safe distance from many tragic events?

    Sometimes I almost feel like it's irrational to not feel affected by an event that would profoundly affect me if only I were to witness it first-hand. But then, if I were to be so affected by all the tragedies that happen, I might be too paralyzed to lead a normal life. I just find the disconnect that goes on here interesting and mind-boggling.
    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    You are a funny dude Bighead. This thread is rediculous.

    First misread the title as "A Safety Dance from tragic events". Disappointed to find out the truth.

    I don't find it strange that viewing an event within a medium you recognize as merely artifice to be just that to be all that strange.

    I might be the opposite - the boundaries of information have continued to expand, but the bounds of reality seem to have stretched. We accept much more of what we see, without being able to connect with its reality.

    It's not particularly surprising, but it is tragic in that it is pretty in line with the general evolution of the medium in question. McLuhan may never have been so right.
