Empathy is the necessary beginning

Wow. There’s a school of thought that says success in today’s terms requires a psychopathic lack of empathy. So Bloom might be a poster boy for that idea.

Aside from that, I reckon we need an award for people with an extraordinarily poor grasp of empathy. It could be called the Margaret Thatcher Society Award, after her oft-derided comment saying there’s no such thing as society, only individuals and families. Bloom could easily be construed as saying there’s no such thing as empathy.
