I think some people don't get the difference between equanimity and indifference. Ultimately there is nothing there to save but that doesn't mean one shouldn't care and nurture the appearance of things that arise. After all from the Mahayana point of view all these things have the potential to awaken and from the perspective of the Bodhisattva vow that potential should be nurtured. Just my 2p on the subject - sorry if it's a little mystical for some people. :).
