I stupidly believe that if people were more open, they would strive to develop empathy
The Calm Catalyst
Laura Hilliger

I would drop the adverb here. I think that being open, almost radically transparent, does lead to greater empathy.

First you get exposed to greater perspectives. We need to get out out of the bias bubbles we build through our social feeds, notifications, and hanging out with folks who look and talk like us,

Second there is evidence emerging that open culture does improve empathy and productivity. Don’t have the cites now, but will track them down.

Can we be aggressively empathetic? I do not know. Maybe the act of aggression negates a chance of empathy.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
