Don't give me evils..

Another quick post (honestly!). The title of the post will be recognised by most of the UK audience as taken from Little Britain and everyones favourite 'chav' Vicky Pollard.
Anyway, I stumbled across an article in today's Independent online titled: Why a lack of empathy is the root of all evil.
The article discusses a new book from Prof. Simon Baron-Cohen called 'Zero degrees of empathy: a new theory of human cruelty'. Most people connected to autism will have heard about Prof. Baron-Cohen's theories on empathy and autism. The article has attracted some interesting comments.
That's all.
