In my experience, people are morbidly fascinated by graphic image's and awful scene's. People will stand and watch whilst accident victims are rescued from cars and treated at the road side. Death and anothers misfortune fascinates us. People take joy at people's misfortune, a case in point is the stream of TV programmes highlighting people having accidents. It is only when the image's become explicit that the human body reacts with revulsion. Explicit and raw reality drive the human emotions to actually object to what they are seeing. It is that objection that moves people to act and make a difference.
Those who feel powerless to instigate change only need to look at events in their own lives which have caused them to act in a different way and change what has or is about to happen to them.
Instigating change is a mindset, and the world is full of examples of people acting to make that change and sometimes change the course of human history. Sitting back and saying I can't see the point, I can't make a difference is a cop out. Everyone can make a difference and even a small contribution can change the course of events.
