Now, look at what just happened there. Human beings need compassion, like food. And it's free, like air. Yet we withhold our compassion when presented with greatness, and only let it flow when presented with pathetic pictures of suffering and strife. David Devant is at the top of his form? What a jerk, bending the rules like that. David Devant is sitting paralyzed in an asylum for incurables? WE LOVE YOU DAVID!
If we made compassion our "default setting," I'm sure we'd see more greatness and less incurables.
