Compassion is so vital to our nation because it strengthens our commitment to our founding principle that all are created equal. That principle is not only essential to accountable government, but also to effective governance because it facilitates knowledge and understanding.
Without compassion for people, you don’t value them. And if you don’t value them, you don’t understand them. And if you don’t value or understand them, you can’t serve them. And when this is the condition of our leaders, the people suffer.
Leaders without compassion for the people don’t care to understand their lives: their struggles, their worries, their hopes. Instead they focus on themselves, on their press coverage, personal wealth and power, all while ignoring the interests of the people they serve.
I think it’s clear that this president and his allies couldn’t care less about Americans suffering from this pandemic. Over 50,000 have already died, but it could be 100,000 or more and it wouldn’t make a difference. Their sole concern is themselves and that is an awful tragedy.
