3.2.1.1. Ignorance. People do not care about what is happening. They choose to forget it.

3.2.1.2. Psychological. The more people around, the less likely it is that someone will help. This is because people follow what the majority of people do. It's like a type of flocking. But some break that mould and help.

3.2.1.3. People are only looking after themselves.

3.2.1.4. People need to pay more attention. If people are more attentive, then less people would be hurt. And more people would be helped.

3.3.1.6. Double entendre. There are two types of change.

3.3.1.7. Societies mistakes: all society cares about is money. Not about changing the world for the better. Most people are self-centred.
