The Disguise of Empathy
I’ve written previously about the significance of identity. I’d like to think that we don’t dispute the importance of what we describe in so many different ways. Self respect, personal growth, birthright, credibility, social standing … how many more ways could you describe that?
We see the crushing of identity in cancel culture, previously name and blame, or further back simply ‘shame’. We’re trying to legislate that as hate speech.
Empathy has a significant role in this equation too, particularly that shown by Ardern in her initial love and kindness to all.
The disguise of empathy is an attack on identity. One that says, if you don’t have my empathy, you don’t have my respect. If you don’t tolerate my disdain you are unworthy.
Have you noticed more recently how it is not love and kindness to all but those who believe in me.
It has the consequential effect of dimishining our respect for each other. This allows us to dehumanise other individuals and attack them.
In essence it separates us as a community, as rational self-respecting sentient beings. It’s a social confusion that can only lead to disruption, violence and increasing quantities of social disorder.
We’re seeing it now where a blue uniform is a target, a barrier for people attempting to escape this social prison, and the destruction of their lives fearful of losing identities that we each have built.
Some are more vulnerable than others.
The sin is non-compliance and the enemy an invisible threat.
We have a cancer in our body and it’s quickly spreading through the lifeblood of our country, killing us a little more each day.
Get rid of the cancer, before she delivers us to a Hell we will all regret.
