To avoid the local such a politics must bring together particular situations and thereby convey them, that is to say cross a distance, while retaining as far as possible the qualities conferred on them by a face to face encounter. This is not a new problem. In fact the hypothesis of this book is that the spectacle of suﬀering, incongruous when viewed at a distance by people who do not suﬀer, and the unease that this spectacle infallibly provokes – so evident today when eating our evening meal we see famished or massacred bodies paraded before our eyes in our home – is not a technical consequence of modern means of communication, even if the power and expansion of the media have brought misery into the intimacy of fortunate households with unprecedented eﬃciency.
When the obligation is juridically sanctioned, the sacrifice deemed normal usually concerns material goods, the property of the potential helper (thus, damage done to a new car may be weighed against the urgency of using it on poor roads to carry an injured person to hospital), but it does not involve risk to his own life or even his health. The fact of putting one’s own life or health at risk is precisely what separates normal obligation, which can be expected of everyone, from heroism, which distinguishes only some people.
Such a spectacle is clearly problematic. It may even be that this is the only spectacle capable of posing a specifically moral dilemma to someone exposed to it. In fact, when a spectator is faced with any other spectacle that he judges to be without interest, or even indecent, he has the easy option of withdrawing his attention: leaving the room, stopping reading, turning the television oﬀ, etc. But when he is faced with suﬀering such behaviour is not selfevident because in this case he could be accused, or may accuse himself, of indiﬀerence.
