I will never again underestimate the human capacity for indifference. Ours is a very public crucifixion, yet it might as well be happening on Mars. Some eyebrows are raised here, some dismayed looks can be detected there, and outbursts of condemnation and expressions of sympathy can be heard from time to time. Some sent aid to alleviate occasional political pressures, but not a guilty conscience, because guilt does not seem to factor much here. Some sent weapons, but not enough to determine the outcome for either side. The stalemate continues. It’s as if people are following this on their game consoles rather than TV or computer screens. The point is simply to score high, or move up a level or two, but not win. All the world's a PlayStation, And all the men and women merely digitized action figures.
