Modern Barbarism

Why do I get more annoyed and animated over people who like and celebrate horrifying reality programming (Jersey Shore, Things containing Bret Michaels etc.) than I do about sex trafficking, modern day slavery, genocide etc.?

I want to say that it's messed up, but I don't think I can say that truthfully because I clearly don't care enough, yet, to make a change.

I know it's heavy, I know it's not fun, and I know it sounds like one more thing to feel guilty about. It can be, if you want it to, but us feeling guilty isn't going to help anyone.
