Comfort vs. Awareness

There is a famous story of the pond from Peter Singer, a well-known (albeit controversial) philosopher.

It goes like this: imagine you are walking to a class past a pond where a child is drowning. Singer asks: do you have any obligation to rescue the child? Most people say they do. The importance of saving a child far outweighs the cost of ruining one’s clothes and missing class.
