I just finished reading The Day of the Triffids, and had a similar but softer reaction to the morality contained.

I think it's worth pointing out that in the final chapters, our protagonist does become the caretaker of several blinded individuals, and even defends them against the antagonist's plan to reduce the blind population into modern serfs, treated like livestock without rights.

It's still pretty shaking at how quickly the protagonist decides that it's not worth trying to aid any large groups of blind people. The guy could at least give it a go before saying "Nope, not gonna work, I'd better just watch my own ass".
