Can we find our hearts or our neighbors?

Van Jones starts chapter 1 of his The Green Collar Economy with a description of how police harassed a group of people who were displaced by Katrina—making the people march miles, shooting over their heads, driving them off with helicopters, taking their meager food from them. They were trying to get to safety, trying to feed and shelter their babies, and the cops were elevating the protection of property and highways and some old ideas of order over the needs of human life. How idiotic! How fearful! Perhaps some arrogance.

How do people get through to people?

Is our society so mired in the order and competition mind-quicksand, that we can no longer find our hearts nor our neighbors?
