In my opinion, the world would be a better place if we all cultivated more empathy, but this article points out some downsides. https://orbitermag.com/empathy/ Is society better or worse if there is greater social expectation of empathy? Would we all be better off if narcissism were considered normal?
I'm starting to think that "good" is a poorly defined word, and is not the opposite of evil. I think the opposite of evil is empathy. Can a person who has strong empathy be evil? Can a person who lacks empathy ever be truly good? Can anyone convince me either way? And why does it appear that lack of empathy is becoming more prevalent? Is it really, or am I just noticing it more?
I would like to know view on Psychopathy and psychopaths regarding people who were born without empathy. In Islam our core principles are based off of empathy and caring for others. How can can Islam cater to one who has no emotion? These people do exist, and are very good at hiding their psychopathy and its not like in the movies where all of them are killers. Their brains simply function on a different level than the average human, they can feel nothing on an emotional level. I am particularily talking about those who are born with this condition. Also they still know right from wrong but chose to only benefit themselves, do we have any ahadith on this or saying from the ahlulbayt? Maybe a brother/sister with psychopathy can pitch in?
