Intervening When People Do Wrong

There are instances in this society when people do hurtful and destructive things to others.  When that is the case, one may be conflicted as to whether or not to step in and do something about it.  Truthfully, the act of stepping in can take many different forms, not just explicitly going in to immediately right a wrong.  For instance, one can resort to sending a letter to certain authorities requesting that they become involved in setting new standards that would prevent even more people from getting hurt.  In addition, one can spread the word to others about the situation that is occurring and how something should be done about it.  Techniques such as these may be the best option when one is at risk of getting hurt as well.  However, this depends on which method would have the most impact in overturning the situation.  Sometimes it is best to quickly step in and do something about it.  This would be the case when the “wrongdoer” is not much of a threat to the safety of those close by.  Still, even this depends on how close one is to those involved or getting hurt.  That’s why it’s considerably important for one to utilize fast and perceptive judgment in such situations.  If one can tell that a person is being unfairly treated, it would likely be one of the worst options to simply do nothing about it, or worse yet partake in the wrongdoing.  Those options should be avoided whenever possible.
