Let me throw this out there … in one sense the issues you listed don’t affect the people who complain about them at all. But when you look at those issues as way of controlling people’s lives so that the complainers can feel better about themselves as well as the very people they seek to keep under foot, those issues directly affect their lives in that those issues are a means to an end: the elevation of self and the denigration of “others.”

Helping people is a lot easier and more rewarding than trying to keep a boot on someone’s neck.
