Very true. Most of the major issues can be traced back to something small which was not rectified and things escalated. Thats why in engineering if we use the 5 Why's we are most likely to get to a root cause of a problem and then correct it to for the long term.

I guess this is the Theory of Chaos...something small which we think may have no impact at all will hunt us down. At least this could have been controlled but not the butterfly flaps that would have altered the tornados.

The flip side of this is assumed accountability - even if you didn't have a hand in the initial problem, if you see it, you fix it. Or at least take the problem to someone who is equipped to fix it.

“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”

Too Good an article. "It's not our problem" is mostly the common statement that remains the cause of all the problems. Each time someone says this statement, they forget to realize, what has happened to others or outside, will not take too long to impact them. If this can be fixed, most of the societal problems can be solved.
