It is also defined as "serious attention or consideration applied to doing something correctly or to avoid damage or risk."
As a verb it is said to mean to "feel concern or interest; attach importance to something." or "look after and provide for the needs of."
Modern governments also suggest that they care for people, because they provide benefits. Rome did this in the days of Polybius when people developed an appetite for benefits at the expense of their neighbor.
But do modern governments actually care? Or does this forced care and provision actually create a risk of damage to the fabric and character of society. Free societies are naturally held together by social virtues rather than social compact.
The Cremation of Care is an annual theatrical production written, produced and performed by and for members of the Bohemian Club, and staged at the Bohemian Grove near Monte Rio, California at a small artificial lake amid a private old-growth grove of Redwood trees.
The dramatic performance is presented on the first night of the annual gathering as an allegorical banishing of worldly cares for the club members.
The secretive nature of these gatherings and the Bohemian Club along with the high ranking political power of its members suggests that there is a corruption of power within the broad spectrum of members. Alex Jones, who characterized the Cremation of Care as a ritualistic shedding of conscience and empathy, and an "abuse of power", saw a powerful conspiracy undermining personal liberties. 
If the governments of the world from Cain to Nimrod and Saul to Caesar have been corrupted by the power they obtain from the wantonness of the people's desires to cremate care, then Christ must have come to raise care from the dead.
Christ came to raise Care from the grave.

- Care is deemed as being too dull, in the eyes of the world's greedy leaders. As care is banished (shoved aside and killed), the greedy leader walks on in his lust. He pretends to care, so that his true motive (lust for power and monetary gain) remains concealed. Meanwhile, those 'under his care' (citizens, church members or club members) are confused, as they witness what appears to be care, while at the same time discovering their leader does not deeply care about this group's members, and he selfishly protects his wallet. For the most part, he hates whatever may cause him to suffer pain or loss. Real care is willing to suffer so that matters of real importance (weightier matters) are successfully accomplished.
