Empathy is a tool for building people into groups, for allowing us to function as more than self-obsessed individuals.
I loved Debussy, Stravinsky, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, anything with romantic melodies, especially the nocturnes. Nietzsche was a hero, especially with 'Thus Spoke Zarathustra.' He gets a bad rap; he's very misunderstood. He's a maker of individuals, and he was a teacher of teachers.
Many individuals are doing what they can. But real success can only come if there is a change in our societies and in our economics and in our politics.
