This seems to be a recurring theme in our society today. If someone else says something to your child in public, you might say "Mind your own business"- when referring to our efforts abroad I often see people say "We should mind our own business!"
Can someone please tell me what that means? Are we not all sharing the same planet? At what point does Joe Dictator's horrible doing become my business? Or at what point do your child's misbehaviors become my business? Do we just wait until our own individual selves are held at gun point or wouldn't it be better to hold each other as a people and a nation accountable before it ever got to that point?
I just watch some of the WAY older movies and it seems like that aspect in particular is drastically different... and maybe not for the best. Your thoughts? What caused it? Is it a fear of being judgemental? Where is the line drawn?

I believe that we are, and should be accountableto one another. The world would be a much nicer place if we looked out for one another. Our opinion can differ, and still respect one another. But like the PP said why is it that some has to die or be hurt before someone care.
YES WE ARE OUR BROTHERS KEEPERS

I hate to break this to you, Crapy, but the Cold War is over.
Just because the Cold War is over, does not mean that we shouldn't stand together and try to prevent communism and tyrannies from spreading. We shouldn't let people walk all over each other and take away others rights. From as little as helping a mother out by stopping their child from falling over a steep edge to stopping genocide in other countries we should stand together and help those in need of help.
