EmpathyDo we really understand empathy?Theme:empathy, culture, changing familySummaryTranscript
I was struck in New Zealand by the fact that the children are so kind to each other. I hadn’t seen that in a long, long time. We were certainly kind to each other. We were never willfully unkind because it’s painful to us. When we were 10 and 11 years old we would discuss things like that, that these things were painful to us. That’s empathy but today we have what is called children without conscious.
