And yet, as recent events with Mike Brown and Robin Williams have shown us, Conservatives today lack a basic empathy that makes them seem inhumane.
At a time when we as a nation should be coming together, time and time again we drift further apart. Even now, events like a celebrity death or protests against police brutality have become massively polarizing.
For every person today that empathizes with someone, it seems like clockwork that there will immediately be someone who feels no empathy whatsoever and even will choose to attack this person for feeling empathy in the first place.
It would seem that we have become a nation incapable of feeling basic human emotion.
