They each have their own agenda and reasoning for doing this. They are also, all, shocked at the violence and lack of structure in the facility. What strikes me, is the level of violence, over trivial things, such as sharing hash-browns.
This is a microcosm of our world, I think. There are factions stirring up trouble and the rest of society reacting to it. I wonder, why it is, the good people, for fear, do not stand up, speak up and rise to action. For they, we, are the majority.
Fear of retaliation, fear of harm to ourselves? I do have to admit, I've never been put in a position where my safety was in danger if I took a stand, but, my husband, Ed has.
In our 20's we lived, briefly, in a dangerous neighborhood. One afternoon, Ed stopped at a local, small grocery store to pick up some things. While in the store a robbery was attempted. I say attempted because, Ed and another man, tackled the robber and held him down until the police came. To say I was, am proud, is quite an understatement.
In the show "Survivor" factions, alliances, are all about numbers. The good people of the world have the numbers. If more of us were willing to stand up, we could change the world in short order. Certainly many of us would die, but isn't that war? If we took it to the street level, maybe war on a global level would die as well.

I am simply posing the question.
Fantasizing the freedom to do the right thing when the choice arises.
