A lack of empathy is obvious in psychopaths who commit horrendous crimes without remorse. At a lower level it is rampant in society. For example, it is amazing how many people act with hatred toward gay people until someone in their family comes out as gay. Then their empathy kicks in and they change their position. We need to consciously try to put ourselves into the shoes of every other person to see how they feel and see what they have to cope with before taking action. Empathy does not mean government giveaways, not stating your opinions or enjoying your own life. It does mean recognizing the ramifications of your actions on fellow human beings.

“I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person.” ― Walt Whitman
