So, I have been watching all of these films about either topics of animal cruelty, the challenges of being homeless and hungry, and various other videos that create such a pull in some that it sends a drive to do something about it. But how many people follow through with their promises? Statistics show that while most people feel that drive, about only a quarter of those people go through with their promised help. Either work, hobbies, or some other factors get in the way. But my question is, what kind of pull do most people feel when they are shown a video? Is there some kind of psychology to what drives us to do something more than the other video? Such as I watched a rather disturbing video about where our meat comes from (being a vegetarian, I feel just a tad bit better but that still creates a disturbance in me that makes me want to hurl), and then I watched a movie about how a homeless man went from being an esteemed hero coming back from war to being homeless and hungry. Yet, I felt more for the animals in the video (not going to link that one here because it is horribly graphic and there are children on this site. More or less, you'll have to do your own digging for all the video references I make here). So, what does that mean? I feel that I have more of a moral strength for things that cannot vouch for themselves. But I wanted to know if others felt stronger for certain causes, but lesser for others and why? Does that prove that someone has stronger morals than the other? If that is confusing, let me rephrase it. For someone who leans more towards helping animals or children, but kind of shys away from war torn, bloody genocides among humans (not to say children aren't humans they just don't have a strong voice for themselves), does that mean they lack empathy? I feel that while sometimes videos get to you better than others, but that doesn't mean you are heartless. But my main question, one that I'll admit I've danced around in this crazy topic, is what kind of morals do you put into place while watching the videos? Or is it kind of morbid to spend your time watching them? And when I say 'morals', I mean what do you feel before, during, or after the video? I am not saying that you don't have them if you don't feel any. But if you do, I want to know the reaction to it.
