Right now, terrorism - but apathy kind of fuels terrorism in a way so I guess that's important too

Ooooh, apathy is far, far worse. Terrorists are not apathetic, and look how much damage they do. The people who sat-in during the Civil Rights Movement were not apathetic, and look what they accomplished. If more people actually made an effort toward peace and equality on a day-to-day basis, we'd have a much better world. Unfortunately, most people aren't willing to put forth any effort at all.

Terrorism is not as common among members of our society, and is usually only used by radicals. Apathy could create a far greater threat to our societal structure if it would become prevalent, because most people would stop supporting others.

Apathy is a problem, but nobody cares.

Apathy makes us more suseptible to terrorism.

i think i've posted this quote before, but it applies here pretty well... "though we must all fear evil, there is a different kind of evil we should fear most, & that is the indifference of good men."

You can fight terrorism, but you can't fight apathy. It's a disease.

I think they're tied.

Here we got to think about influence to make any valid estimation as to terrorism or apathy is more dangerous to society.

I can't see how apathy can be more dangerous to society than terrorism. Think about it. If 100 terrorists start ... well terrorize it makes a huge jumble in the jungle, but if 100 persons behave apathetic then nothing happens; static behavior.

Apathy. It's allowing our 'rulers' free reign to us the world as our feeding trough that creates the conditions for terrorists to breed and succeed.

Apathy! Great question! I saw Elie Wiesel lecture on this very issue a month ago. Apathy is the greatest detriment to hope and the preservation of decency.
