The fundamental issue really concerns the morality of the bystander. In most cases, most of us are neither victims nor perpetrators of human rights violations; we occupy the role of bystanders. Even though some of us may intellectually appreciate the ethical duty to aid and rescue suffering strangers, by far the greater number of us are sitting behind a veil of indifference which prevents us from acting. 1
