A very interesting project to document modern day behavior took on the issue of domestic abuse, and surprisingly only one person out of 53 reacted when they witnessed clear verbal and physical abuse less than a few feet away from them.
This is sad, and surprising; I feel like anecdotally I’ve seen a higher ratio of people step in, especially when a woman is the victim. Could part of it be something to do with Swedish society? The woman who did finally react spoke English, but it’s hard to say–also, as we all know, these kinds of experiments are fascinating but at the end of the day not scientific nor statistically relevant.
