Asshole Disease

There are meds on the way, no doubt.

"To summarize the main points of both articles: Dr. Douglas LaBier, founder of the Center for Adult Development in Washington, D.C. (“a premier nonprofit educational, research, and service organization whose mission is to promote adult development in the workplace and in personal lives,” according to its website), discovered a mental disorder through years of research and analysis that he calls Empathy Deficit Disorder.

The disorder, which he says is running wilder than Hulkamania, prevents people from being able to see things from another person’s perspective and is responsible for a smorgasbord of ills, from relatively minor SNAFUs like divorce to that biggest of communication breakdowns, war."
