So when I saw this article from CNN about EDD (Empathy Deficit Disorder), I finally realized that I can’t help it either.
I’m afflicted with a disorder. A disease that I can’t control. EDD is rampant among Americans, so that makes me more comfortable knowing that I’m in a large group of people who “just can’t” show empathy. It’s not our fault, we have a disease.
The psychologist who “identified” this disorder credits it with creating most conflict in this world. From war to divorce, it’s all because of EDD. It destroys lives and causes political strife.
