In the past week, we’ve seen our worldview up-ended by the (in)famous Wiki-Leaks, an “election” in Haiti, and today the Nobel Prize for Peace being given to an empty chair.

No wonder so many people simply throw up their hands, shake their heads, and head out the door to spend money on Christmas presents nobody really needs.

But really, is that sense of cocooning oneself sustainable?  Frankly, I think all the dictators, autocrats, and zealots want us to tune out.  I’m already reading about “Haiti fatigue” with donor countries and individuals themselves apparently tired of all the stories about people still living in tents, democracy gone awry, and now, tires burning in the streets.  What’s the point, they ask?

But remember, if the world tunes them out, the bad guys are free to do what they want.

It’s hard to stay engaged.  That’s what makes it important.  Resist the urge to tune out humanity…
