Although we are very good at feeling pain at the suffering of others, at least when it is presented to us forcefully (and bad ideology doesn’t get in the way), Nussbaum reminds us that human compassion, like animal compassion, has a tendency toward narrowness – preferring those nearby and similar over those far away and different – and also a tendency to be fickle and fleeting. Compassion can also lead to favouritism and the trumping of general moral principle, and can all too easily be inhibited by a desire to conform and obey authority. But most importantly for Nussbaum, human compassion faces a severe limitation that does not seem to be shared by animals, and to which we must be particularly alert: that is, our tendency to see certain others as disgusting, ugly reminders of our animal nature. It is the tendency toward disgust that produces social stigma and exclusion, doctrines of contamination and, at worst, acts of radical evil – subordination, humiliation and enslavement. Disgust, Nussbaum thinks, has its roots in the particularly human phenomenon of narcissism, the infantile drive to overcome helplessness through the subordination of others. Thus compassion by itself can be no guide to justice; it requires the stabilising and focussing structures of reason and principle, and most of all safeguards against our tendencies toward narcissism and disgust.

The best thing you can do is to change the mind of a sinner.
Anyone can be angry, but it takes some real energy to change that anger into something productive.

I want to be in a good place when I break the barrier. It’s no different than two married peoples wanting a good financial security before deciding to have a child to raise. Planning and self-control works!
