I imagine a scene in which a father comes home from work and sits down in his favorite recliner. His two children and wife greet him and each give him a kiss – as he is a very loving man in their eyes – and they later have dinner. After dinner, the man takes his knife and, without warning, buries it into the eye socket of his oldest child. Speaking incoherently, he remarks that the deed simply had to be done. Why? He would not elaborate as his next action was to slit his own throat. Seconds later, the wife does the same leaving one child dead and another scarred for life.
Any NT seems to become possessed with irrationality and vengeance when it comes to events that do not affect them but that evoke feelings of deep-seated empathy. They turn to their greatest weapons to satisfy the command of empathy, their surrogate for logic. Whether it is Anonymous doxxing groups that they perceive as ‘evil’ or social media fanning its own flames into a hellfire that makes Dresden look tame, the hysteria jumps from individual to individual with little warning and even less explanation. It’s like a blood orgy where the only concern is to ensure that their primal empathic responses are satiated.
