A two faced business – Facts and fallacies about the business sense of survival or empathy.

The two mutually supportive predominant instincts that define human behaviour are survival and empathy. …


The empathy model also conjures up many assumptions that have to be challenged.

The empathy model is leftist, socialist, Marxist and anti-free market.


  • Without a strong underpinning of empathy our world would fall apart and humanity would self-destruct.
  • As Adam Smith implied in “Theory of Moral Sentiments”, empathy is nurtured in freedom. Freedom in turn cannot flourish without empathy.
  • Empathy cannot be institutionalised in a system. Coerced empathy is an intolerable oxymoron and creates resentment and envy.
