Empathic Civilization

This is very nice, but it tells only one side of the story. If you want to truly understand the current human dilemma, please read the first chapter of Jeremy Rifkin’s book of the same name. All the empathy in creation will not help to resolve our dilemma unless we apply it to the service of rebalancing the physical and physiological life-support systems of the living earth. The danger is that we will assume the earth recognizes human values and needs in the same way that we do. The critical differences are the cause of the dilemma. I have not seen a description of this dilemma published in any other place than the first chapter of Empathic Civilization. If you want to know the real truth, please read it. Please.

  1. I’m there! Empathy is a real thing and some are more “tuned in” than others, although whether that is better or not is not an issue. It is just the way it is and is getting to be more and more common.
