In my previous post, I started a conversation about the causes of neglect. The next cause is indifference.
I can only comment about what I know about myself and perceive in others. It seems there is often something of greater importance, which focuses attention away from things that once had significance. Most troubling is when we just don’t care, because it’s more convenient than to put even a small amount of effort forwards maintenance. I do believe there is also some degree of ignorance at play. Some folks did not have the opportunity to “learn” the value of property. They didn’t have to invest their blood, sweat and tears; or perhaps their highest priority has always been where their next meal would come from.
