Saw that last evening and really enjoyed it.The quote was actually:"Evil is the absence of empathy."
Thanks Medbh!LOL posted a comment on his blog saying 'lack' - aw well, head like a sieve :)
This quote has been echoing in my consciousness for days now. Brilliant. No empathy=evil.This is what is happening in the US since nutjob terrorists took over the Republican party: evil--the kind that comes from the absence of empathy. They don't care if children die because their parents lost a job and therefore health insurance--or if the disabled are left to die in the streets: because they feel nothing for anybody but themselves. They say they're terrified of "socialism"--not that they know what it is--but what they've got instead is sociopathism: the absence of empathy. Pure evil.
