    "Apathy" is one.

    You might also research: indifference, fatalism, pessimism, disinterest, detachment, alienation.

    Perhaps "blasé".

    I like apathy. However the term has a pyschological meaning which tends to categorize a person with apathy as one who is appropriately sick rather than just peculiar. I feel that indifference would be most closely interchangeable with "I don't care>"
