Trope-a-Day: Apathetic Citizens

Apathetic Citizens: Averted in the Empire; also actually illegal, since after the first equivalent to the (popular understanding of the) Kitty Genovese case demonstrated the bystander effect, the Senate decided to make it really clear that when the Imperial Charter said that citizen-shareholders had the responsibility to defend their fellow citizens’ rights as their own, it bloody well meant it.

Also played straight with regard to disasters, terrorism, etc., since the Imperials by and large think far too much of themselves to let fire, flood, or some degenerate with a bomb disturb their sangfroid.
