The Missing Link to Innovation and Inclusion

It’s Time to Talk about Mental Health, with Empathy at the Core

From divorce papers: “Adam Lanza had been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, an autism-like disorder”
(zero positive empathy and not harmful, according to Simon Baron-Cohen in The Science of Evil, on Empathy and the Origins of Cruelty)

From a mother of a similar boy: “I agree that something must be done. It’s time for a meaningful, nation-wide conversation about mental health. That’s the only way our nation can ever truly heal. God help me. God help Michael. God help us all.”

How did Adam get to Zero. Negative. Empathy?
