Empathy

I want to care but I don’t anymore (pathologically) but I want to care and it’s all that matters, being willing to try my best to care and to act respectfully; so I love the way this post is worded, I don’t know if it was intentional from Khai’s part. I have responsibility and I ask myself to honour it daily as I ask people to honour theirs. The personal is political but I think it’s a 2-way influence in the current systems in which we live. True social change is likely to happen if we do away with legislation completely and change people and minds, but in the meantime we also have to demand that the legislations imposed upon us meet every person’s needs and not vice versa.
