Going with the flow, and not rocking the boat, is some people's idea of being a good American. They are like door mats. You can wipe your feet on them, and they don't complain.
What if someone tries to harm their families? Are they going to respond kindly, and stay out of the way while it happens?
I just don't know. I do see things going down that are very bad, but people turn a blind eye. Some people will only respond if there is no risk to their own little red wagon. Nevertheless, their little red wagon may be in danger if someone else's little red wagon is damaged!
Sitting idly by and watching other people's little red wagon get damaged without any response seems dangerous, to me!
