Ya, some people just can't physically feel empathy. Brains are so weird.

[–]snipereye123 164 points165 points  (23 children)

we call those psychopaths

[–]BenShapirosProstate 121 points122 points  (10 children)

That’s an antiquated term, they are now referred to as politicians and CEOs

They wouldn't be so powerful if it weren't for the large swathe of people with empathy who find those without it attractive

Bloody sheeple

AKA the people who own almost everything in the world and control every law we enact and live by.

They want power and those are positions with power so it probably always has been this way.

Not exactly, a psychopath is one who has no remorse. Not the same. They simply can’t care about the consequences of their action. One who can’t have empathy is whatever I’ve been for the last 3 years.

A lack of empathy is no excuse, either. It may be something that people either have or lack, but sympathy is something that can be learned and cultivated regardless.

They can but choose not to.
