What benefit do people get when they deliberately make things difficult for other people? When they know they can help one quite easily, in the snap of a finger, but don’t, quite obstinately? Why doesen’t that little voice inside them tell them the right thing to do? Or is it dead?
The only plausible thing I can think of is that they want the other person to help himself. But when the person is literally struggling, gasping for breath, is that the right thing to do? Whatever happened to that quality called humaneness?
