I posted a domestic violence PSA from South Africa on facebook . Some people picked a small, townhouse style community to conduct an experiment. First they had someone play a set of drums. Within a few minutes, several people came over to complain. A few nights later, they played the sounds of a couple arguing, breaking glass, a woman screaming. They played random parts three separate times through the night. No one complained. No one came to the door. Other houses turned out their lights.
I posted this with the comment that I hoped we would come to the person’s aid, or at least check it out. But would we? I was rather shaken to realize that NO ONE out of my 600 friends commented on it. I’m sure they watched it, but they had nothing to say. That in itself speaks volumes.
