Well to be 100% honest, girlinterupted saying "I'm really sorry you are going through this." I would describe as empathic, also your words seem to be an expression of concern and empathy.When you read the responses in this thread, do you see people confronting you or being empathic?
Also when she said this:
I don't know what you think I'm forcing people to be, all it is is a dislike of selfish people. I just expect what would be considered common decency.You can’t force people into being what they are not. That’s half the reason for human conflict, trying to get others to behave how you think they should.
Is it not clear that half the reason there isn't more conflict is due to empathy for others? If there is one thing we should expect from others its to care about one another, it's not anything terrible to expect. Once this goes out the window, where shojld we draw the line? I mean the US has a vastly superior firepower, should they use it on mexico to get jem to pay the border wall? Should they have used napalm in veitnam? It's probably good to feel disgust for that, and to expect order, because it's actually what prevents conflict.
