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.
