She carried her child in her arms when she was put to death. The news of the death of a young, well-educated mother of a young child in one of the more affluent areas of the shaking of the malmöitiska the middle class who would otherwise respond to each and every new shooting, every burst of to love, Malmö, sweden a little bit more.
in the Days after the murder, in the Karolin Hakim was filled with the flow of Facebook status updates from members, advertising management, media, and academics, living in Malmö, sweden, who was about to leave Malmö, sweden. Malmö did not feel any longer safe and secure, and suddenly there loomed a small house in a safe residential area in one of the more well-maintained four municipalities is Malmö, which in this malmöitiska the middle class in the past for.

You know, the one where the medielogiken, which means that a Swedish backpacker's death in Mumbai, india, may, ten times the size of the headlines of well over a hundred dead indians in a train crash outside of New Delhi, right? Human beings have a limited capacity for empathy and compassion, and we find it easier to empathize with people who are like us. It was, therefore, in the image of the drowned boy, Alan Kurdi evoked such strong emotions. The little dead boy with the same shoes with the velcro that a lot of English young boys.
We knew ourselves, and we thought, ' it could have been my son.”
It was a woman in Malmö, sweden, brought the same feeling of recognition. A well-educated, attractive, well liked woman. The doctor and the mother. Someone who is like me, like us. Someone who we can identify with.
the Report lays bare the immorality of the
Court Morenos story, which is based on the murder of a young man, in the midst of the people, on their way to the boat show at Älvsjö, stockholm, provides a rich example of the phenomenon I describe above is A nymornad middle class, that is, with equal parts of dismay and the surprise of seeing the violence to creep closer, and hit them, despite the fact that, as one person puts it, ”do more – to educate themselves, save, is working, will be well-educated and fairly well högavlönad, belånar high up to the ears and still live in an area where there is open drug dealing”.

That is not an admirable attitude. On the contrary, the. It is immoral to turn away the face of the violence of hitting someone else: Someone who is not like me. Puzzling, to say, very often it is this category of people as a very prestigious in the moral issues.
