Why Do People Wait To See If The "Good Guy" Will Win?

Postby Wolfeye » Mon Nov 09, 2015 3:25 am

I've been wondering for a while why people don't jump in when someone is going on. It's like they are just spectators when there's a problem & want to peacefully observe whatever happens. It's very bizarre for me, because these same people don't seem to want the "Good Guy" to lose & they don't openly state that the "Good Guy" will be invincible just because of being right. They know that they can lose a conflict themselves, even when right. So why is there this weird "let's see who God chooses" mentality? They don't presume on there being divine intervention with much, so why with danger? These people don't "leave it up to God" when they're driving- they hit the brakes so they don't crash.

People don't want to take risks for things that don't directly concern them. There's a lot of danger and little to no tangible payoff.

Yeah, but if it's going to come around to them, doesn't it concern them? I'd think having the drop on a bad situation instead of having to deal with it when at a disadvantage would be preferable. Especially since people DON'T usually tend toward head-on conflict resolution here, being able to jump in when the "gettin's' good" would be a useful idea.
