@ LB: perhaps sympathy is a more accurate word?
|Seems like quantification to me.|
I suppose it is, I have labeled them both "wrong". Putting them in the same category allows me to apply the same rules to them.
My girlfriend gets mad when I do this, I think it works.
So I say that the person who lacks compassion is the same as the person who blows people up because they're both thinking "you did something bad, I don't care about you".
Of course, the guy who blows a bunch of people up is a little tweaked, to say the least.
I don't have any answers as far as what the "right" thing would be, but I do think it starts with having compassion (Sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others) for everyone, not to just pick and choose.
|I honestly don't know what you're trying to say.|
I don't know that I've answered that.
| One doesn't need to feel compassion to believe in fair treatment. |
Fair treatment isn't necessarily "nice" treatment.
