Inspection- Be a Proud Tax and Spend Liberal

  To be clear: I don't consider myself a "liberal." Not because I have a problem with the term. Some of my opinions are more left, or liberal if you wish, some not. But I do have a problem with how terms shift in meaning over time.

Empathy is Progressive

Empathy is an ability to relate to the emotions of others. Humans have a tendency to mimic the emotions of those around them. In other words, as your feelings go, my feelings go; if you feel sad, I feel sad; if you feel happy, I feel happy if you feel angry, I feel angry;; if you feel love, I feel love; if you feel compassion, I feel compasson. Being empathetic makes us emotionally sensitive and sympathetic to the world around us. Thus, it is a key to prosocial feelings which lead to prosocial behavior.
