I am certain that human nature is based on empathy, love, and compassion. The kind of violence that erupted in Charlottesville this week seems to provide substantial disconfirmation of that assumption. If humans are essentially “built” for love, how can we treat each other with such cruelty? The answer is simple. We must be taught to hate and fear. I have written on this before and I hope you will read my post on this topic. http://real-matters.com/?p=56
We can choose to allow our natural empathy to flourish. We can choose to teach love and acceptance.
