Psychopath's have a distinct lack of or even a complete absence of Empathy and compassion as well usually as any sense of guilt.
This makes them both far more prone to harm other's in pursuit of there own interests and in fact a danger to all around them.
Empathy is an essential root human ability and emotion, from it and into it flow compassion, mercy, love, kindness and charity.
Guilt is something all people that are not psychopathic, it is a feeling of knowing you have done wrong, of knowing you have deprived someone else or
harmed them, we are complex being's we can even feel guilt about fighting someone whom is attacking us, guilt when we are the victim's of someone else
attack's such as woman feel when they have been raped and can also blame ourselves wrongly at time's.
Imagine an evil psychopath before God, no guilt in it's heart and a good man whom has done little of anything wrong yet feel's as guilty as if all
the world's sin's were his own.
God's children CAN feel guilt, Compassion, Empathy etc the devil's children, well I am really not sure what they can feel.
I feel guilt if I do anything wrong and I felt guilt when I was jumped and had head injury's because I chose not to defend myself for fear I would
hurt THEM (I was drunk, drunk as a skunk but really anyone with any common sense would have throttled them in the same situation I mean there were
only six of them and one of me and I was bigger and stronger so by right's should have beaten them into a pulp, try being drunk for two years with
delayed concussion, falling over your feet all the time, trouble sleeping, walking into door's and even wall's and slurred speech, not nice yet I felt
guilty as if it was my fault), it's human and at least you know you are human not a dead inside person, pain and guilt may make you want to run away
but no emotions at all is like being in hell.
There is a worse state to be in than guilt, one that suppresses your emotions, your brain activity and put's you into gloom and a sense of endless
sorrow and insecurity, depression.
