What kind of foreign policy would we have if we didn’t have armies of traumatized sociopaths ready to commit atrocities on command because they have been empathically blinded? Adults forget what it’s like to be a child. There is no larger perspective, no abstract discourse about economic priorities or national interest. There is only the now, the I and the not I.
