Dear Sir or Madame,

Anger on another's behalf

To what extent is it reasonable (or wise) to be angered by what you perceive to be another's thoughtlessness, when you are not one of the people affected by it and those who are affected seem to be accepting the situation without complaint?

Most of the time I suspect it is both unreasonable (if those affected don't appear to mind, then why should it bother you?) and unwise (you are unlikely to be fully apprised of the situation and are therefore not in a good position to judge it).

How do other people decide when to do or say something, and when to leave well alone?
