    The vast majority of people are taught to be empathetic at least in word, but the example they're given is just to stick to your own kind. When I hear people say "charity begins at home" - and I think that statement is true in and of itself - it sounds to me that they often mean that charity should start, and end, at home.

    This can be a catalyst for a deeper discussion and maybe we can dive into this further here, and when we see each other in a few weeks.

      I think greed has finally become not just an accepted modus operandi, but it's now celebrated as a desirable characteristic.  When the greedy can not just accumulate for themselves, but take from those less powerful than they are, I think somehow they feel they get bonus points.

      Maybe someone will discover some food additive, like red dye #11, causes this asocial behavior and it will be able to be banned, and then the country can slowly make its way back to a place where the common good is the goal, not the butt of jokes.
