  •  He's not claiming that they lack empathy. (0+ / 0-)

    He's claiming that they're acting immorally.  These are different things.

    •  we could get very deep into this philosophically (0+ / 0-)

      From whence derives morality?

      God?

      Natural empathy?

      Logic?

      I believe that morality is only possible in the presence of empathy, understanding, accurate perception and an ability for self-control.    Can you expect your version of morality from someone who lacks empathy.  Can you truly blame them for lacking empathy?.     Or, a person who lacks self control?    

      It's like blaming a blind person for walking into you.    THEY CAN'T SEE.

      Or, blaming a person for running into your car when the brakes fail.  THEY CAN'T STOP.

      Or, for invading your house in the middle of the night.   THEY WERE CONFUSED.  THEY THOUGHT IT WAS THEIR HOUSE.

      In order for a moral compass to work, the various parts and components have to be working.
