A couple of days ago Scott Hackman left a comment on my post On Line Community: Does It Work. He included a link to this video by Rifkin on the Empathic Society. Evidently we are all soft wired for sociability, attachment, affection and companionship. This I thought was particularly encouraging though in some ways it just confirms what Jesus has always told us. Love God & love your neighbour, befriend them, care for them, respond to their needs, recognize you are all part of the same family.
