I was siting in class when the topic of desensitization was brought up. We were shown a video on YouTube of media coverage of attacks on people where there are just people who stand by and no nothing about it. One of the videos depicted a man getting run over by a car and the car just kept going! No one helped the man up or called the ambulance and that’s when reality set. We have lost decency in humanity, we cannot even bare to help those who need it in any way. Desensitization suggests that we have been exposed to so much violence that when it occurs we are too used to it and don’t have a normal reaction like one would had they seen the action for the first time.
