  1. There are two schools of thought – solidarity and meritocracy. In a
    meritocracy you get what you deserve and help will co$t you. In a
    solidarity people will stand by you, maybe your mom is the best example. I
    find the US to be a society that prides itself on being self-reliant, and
    even when you’re down you’re expected to at least be able to pick yourself
    up.

    Now, in a church setting you will get moral support but likely not much
    more.

    Anything less than being up the creek i found to be seen as
    overcome-able..people passing stranded motorists without stopping eats at
    me but I have to remind myself that they probably called for help already
    and are just waiting.

    Now help is a funny word in English, it’s overly broad. In French,
    immediate help and assistance help are two completely different words with
    vastly different honor and urgency. Refusing to provide immediate help is a
    criminal act, assistance help is completely optional but honorable to a
    point, lunacy beyond it. Maybe if you specified what the help is for the
    evasion would have been lessened?
