Is a philosophical idea that was developed by Hannah Arendt. Much like Edmund Burke's quote, "all that is necessary for the forces of evil to win is for good men to do nothing," the idea is about becoming complacent. She argued that for most "good" people evil is not a concern; it's boring.

Also like Burke she warned against looking the other way, and spent several books developing the idea.
