Sam Richards: A Radical Exercise in Empathy

What does it mean to put yourself in someone “else’s shoes?” What happens when we do it? Does our perspective on the world change? Does it broaden? (hat tip: SK)

    I love this so much.

    NassirH, I think he might have changed his name because he has now started posting at JihadWatch and probably doesn’t want us reading his comments. But in any case, it was pointless to change his name. Not only did we recognise it was him immediately but we can still find out what he gets up to on JW:

    BTW, is it just me or are there advertisements under all JihadWatch posts about cheap calls to Afghanistan? Either Bob’s running low on money or JWers have some relatives in Afghanistan.

    I know this may be off topic, but did anyone else notice how “JihadBob” changed his name to JustBob? An obvious reference to the Catholic concept of Just War (which has been liked to jihad), as outlined by Augustine and other Christian theologians (which I hope Danios covers in his series on jihad). He seems to have been a Christian fanatic, especially when one considers his more bigoted comments about “Reconquista of Anatolia,” etc.

    Interesting-although you can’t blame the grunts on the ground, it’s the people in charge who are responsible

  • Khushboo

    Very good presentation: One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.

  • Dawood

    He really knows how to give a presentation! Definitely sounds like an interesting class to have taken at University.

    But but but they are all dirty, terrorists and they hate us for our freedom.[/sarcasm]
