I am remarkably unfazed by 100,000 cyclone deaths

I know I should feel bad, at least on some Obi-Wan Kenobi "great disturbance in the Force" level, but I really don't. Part of me is even relieved, given all of the concerns about overpopulation, global warming, etc. This concerns me because it totally contradicts my professed belief system.

I just don't know how to relate to people halfway across the world whose lives don't seem to intersect with mine in any meaningful way.
