yeah, its weird... and like any tragedy I just can't stop watching and analyzing. I mean, the destruction and the causualties and loss or livelihood are horrific. the stuff that people down there are going through is horrible. But then when i allow myself to step away from it and just watch with a critical mind I find the entire thing a fascinating social experiment. Kinda cold, but I can't help it. I'm totally enthralled by both the stories of the breakdown of society and the stories of acts of kindness and amazed at all you can learn about the human condition through it.

I feel similarly with every major disaster.

Yeah I understand. I've been looking at it criminologically. Like what makes those people steal tvs and computers? Is it more oppertunity or more survival instinct that they need something of value to barter with?

I think it's a terrible tragedy.

well, there's two parts. One, its just chaos. Chaos breeds more chaos. Mob mentality is like that. Some of the people are just bad, and some of the people are just caught up in the craziness.

But then there's the other aspect. Imagine losing everything you ever owned. Everyone you know also lost everything they ever owned. And you feel like you've been trapped and left to die. If you can get out, you'll be getting out with just the clothes on your back. If it were me, and I could steal a 4x4 truck and load the back up with stolen TVs that I can sell on the street once I get to some semblance of civiliation, I'd probably do that. It might be the difference between being homeless once I get to dry land andd being able to put my family in a Holiday Inn til we get back on our feet.

That said, you also have all the rape and murder going on. I think that's just people losing their minds. I can't excuse it, but its understandable. The entire world just went to absolute shit for them in 12 hours time. That's gotta change a person. Its a shame and its sad.

Yep, those are some of the points brought up in class. At least they're starting to get help down there.

Some of them did. And some of them are a little too conservative to agree. lol
