Pattern number within this pattern set: 
Verbiage for pattern card: 

Societal Apathy is a collective indifference toward issues of concern.  A society that is socially apathetic towards its own sense of purpose might lack the civic intelligence to overcome adversities it encounters.  Another form is directed outward upon groups of people so as to ignore their situation by seeing the troubles that they face as eternal, unchangeable, and ultimately not worth thinking about.
