Here is a quick description and cover image of book Regarding the Pain of Others written by Susan Sontag which was published in 2003-1-7. In Regarding the Pain of Others, Sontag is alerting us about the dangers of the wearing out of our moral feelings. She does not argue that the realities of war and violence must be kept in secret, but she explores this particular and very possible moment when the witness of other people's pain gets so used with atrocity that his moral sense and will to act is overcomed by apathy and inaction. ― Susan Sontag, Regarding the Pain of Others.
