    That was a really interesting, thought-provoking read.

    Kindness and empathy are difficult in our current lives. People agree with it in principle and laud it when they see larger-than-life examples of it (e.g. Mister Rogers), but when it comes right down to it, people in general are afraid to show kindness. It's seen as a weakness that will be exploited.

    I want to know, how do we change this?

      I believe that at it's core, the problem is the ideology of capitalism. This is actually a common view among many sociologists and philosophers. Capitalism is all about self-interest. And to not be self-interested at least to some degree makes life extremely hard. Many feel that the pros in this case outweigh the con of a self-interested society although I personally beg to differ. When it comes down to it though, many just feel there are no alternatives but that is exactly what's stopping an alternative from being found.

      What i feel nurtures kindness is having pets . Since everyone can't or won't have pets, I'm not sure what the answer is.
