Someone give David Brooks a Dictionary

I think he might need one

People without social emotions like empathy are not objective decision-makers.


5. not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased: an objective opinion.

6. intent upon or dealing with things external to the mind rather than with thoughts or feelings, as a person or a book.

"Empathy" is just an excuse for judges not to uphold the law. Empathy is a good quality for a legislator tasked with writing and ammending the law, but not something I want to see in judges tasked with upholding to law in an imopartial manner.

Justice should be blind, we don't need to lift her blindfold.
