The Near Uselessness of Empathy

Empathy sucks. Sympathy is what we all should have for people who have had a rough go of it. Let me give you an example.

Somebody feels really sick and then vomits.

If I feel sympathy, I try to comfort the sick individual. I offer to get him or her water or take him or her to the doctor, if necessary. I am very attentive and try to make things better.

If I feel empathy, I vomit too.

How's that help anybody?
