A complete lack of emotion or motivation, whether directed towards a person, activity, or object.
While it can often be confused with Stoicism
, apathy is much worse than merely not showing feelings, as the person who is apathetic HAS no feelings.
Sadly, the most likely cause of the world's problems is that no one seems to care about anything anymore. Apathy is truly entropy
Physics aside, the inevitable and steady deterioration of any system or society.
The world's entropy will be certain if global health care, poverty and crime are not dealt with.
