Reread the first part of his comment.

If they weren't lined up like this you wouldn't think that.
If everybody's comment stood on its own it would be completely okay for them not to comment on the catastrophe. It's empty words anyway. They're not assholes. They just missed the memo that today was "wear a black tie in memorial of X" day.

Landon Miller

They just missed the memo that today was "wear a black tie in memorial of X" day.
What are you on about? At the moment, the quakes are the big news story, you cannot miss it and with thousands of people displaced and injured, expressing your sympathies should be the first thing on your mind when you think about what to send in.
There was no memo because there didn't need to be a memo.

Jonathan Adams

Empathy is different from pretending to care about a bunch of nameless, faceless statistics.

I'd have to be pretty crazy to get an emphatic response from someone quoting numbers. Millions of people died in WW2. Doesn't mean a damn thing right now.

Easton Smith
Easton Smith

You think going "oh those poor people" while reading a newspaper or watching a video about the catastrophe is "understanding empathy"? Yeah and the hordes of normalfags on facebook and twitter write sympathetic messages about it, gathering retweets and likes, while pretending to give a fuck when all they're doing is just saying their obligatory sad words.
If you're actually feeling empathetic, try actually helping the victims instead. And don't brag about it so people go "what a nice guy".

Samuel Lopez

Do you think Togashi is just a hypochondria?

Literally everytime he even picks up a pencil to draw, he mysteriously comes down with some kind of crippling illness that needs months to years for him to recover.

Brandon Roberts
Brandon Roberts

again, empathy. as a concept, do you know what it is?
it means imagining yourself to be in the same situation (an earthquake) and relating to how it must feel.

if your neighboring town was obliterated,you wouldn't care? what if people you know, relatives, or people related to people you know live there?
fucking hell, none of you even know what this word means apparently. numbers my ass.

honestly i'm just sick and tired of this jaded and ironic generation. you think you're keeping it real or something?

empathy is just a feeling. it does not necessarily translate into action.

don't get me wrong i'm sure you guys don't give a fuck. and i'm sure some of the mangaka in the OP are just pretending. but again, empathy is a thing, and it's not a uncommon thing to feel if you are a working adult with a family. losing your house alone is reason enough for people to feel empathy.

Logan Myers
Logan Myers

if your neighboring town was obliterated,you wouldn't care? what if people you know, relatives, or people related to people you know live there?

You're confating pathological empathy with in-group empathy.

In-group empathy is perfectly natural. Of course I feel for those in my in-group.

The further you are, the less you are the subject of my empathy.

If you're not human, I begin to care so little as to consume your flesh.

honestly i'm just sick and tired of this jaded and ironic generation. you think you're keeping it real or something?

No; we actually don't care. At all. We feel nothing because we're not mentally ill.

Caleb Gomez

Tyler Bennett

what if people you know, relatives, or people related to people you know live there?
That's something that user clearly did not talk about, since he was discussing faceless strangers.
You are moving the goalposts.

it means imagining yourself to be in the same situation (an earthquake) and relating to how it must feel.
And people don't normally do that when they've got no good reason to do it.
Self-preservation is a thing. You need to turn away from the suffering of others in order to live your own life.
How much time do you spend every day feeling horrible because so many people are starving RIGHT NOW?

Nolan Hughes

Not to mention, my earthquake fantasies go about as far as "An earthquake? That'd suck!". "Starvation? That'd suck."

I think empathy is a little more complex than this user imagines.

Brayden Sanchez

If people you know live there that's one thing. But I hope you don't think about disasters around the world 24/7. You'll drive yourself nuts.

The death toll of that earthquake was actually pretty mild compared to the things going on in africa, the middle east, and western europe at the moment.

well nice worthless explanation.
does "japan" count as a group? does "readers" count as a group?

if i had the resources to spare, if i was japanese, i would.
but i don't have and i'm not, so i don't.
THAT's simple reality. you think i can't relate to people just because i don't act on it? this isn't hypocrisy.
again, empathy is just a feeling.

faceless strangers.
again, same nation, and they're lots of readers too probably.
implying empathy will bog you down.
it doesn't. i don't cry about it. i don't feel horrible about it. i just understand it.
don't get me wrong, i don't care about kumamoto, but through empathy i can understand that the artists in the op might care.

and you people apparently don't. when you see someone giving their condolences, you think they're fake.
being edgy on the 4chins doesn't earn you any brownie points either.

So, what exactly is the problem here?

through empathy i can understand that the artists in the op might care.
Oda is probably the only one who actually does.

and you people apparently don't.
Because repeating the same line "deepest condolences" is a sign of shutting off the emotional access to it.
when you see someone giving their condolences
We second-guess things.
being edgy on the 4chins doesn't earn you any brownie points either.
Being edgy has nothing to do with it.

you maybe. but is more than second guessing i'd say

So, what exactly is the problem here?
what, did you lose track of the discussion? you (or maybe not you) said that we "need a good reason" to bother with empathy, actually linking it to self preservation. my response was that empathy doesn't cost a thing.

coming back to the original issue you don't have to know someone directly to feel empathy. that's all

i guarantee you that you aren't even following the conversation.
go on, go all the way back to how this conversation started, and tell me how i'm wrong. tell me how these two
have a better understanding of empathy than i do.

Nathan Bennett
Nathan Bennett

You're heaping your judgments upon people because they didn't insert condolences where you thought they should.

Meanwhile we're just saying it's OK to not think about disasters and victims 24/7. And that if you do, you should actually DO something, not just "empathize" about it on facebook.

On balance I'd say YOU'RE the one being edgy right now.

Andrew Clark
Andrew Clark

Meanwhile we're just saying it's OK to not think about disasters and victims 24/7.
well i don't even disagree

And that if you do, you should actually DO something, not just "empathize" about it on facebook.
again, do you not know what this means? if what you said is true, then we would never be allowed to feel anything unless we act on it.
feeling sad for your friend who lost his job?
give him money/jobs/a place to stay
don't forget that words don't count! so don't even try if you can't give him something in addition to words!
because oh no i'll be a hypocrite!

i've always thought that these kind of things are nice to see in fiction, but in reality it's not a very balanced view at all.

A cliche becomes a cliche because it gets repeated so often. It becomes automatized. It's what you say without thinking about it. When you do think about something, you don't use the cliche.

but is more than second guessing i'd say
Welcome to Sup Forums, where we don't use flowery language to hide suspicions.

my response was that empathy doesn't cost a thing.
No, your response is that you don't actually feel with them. You are not being empathetic. You are just considering it a tragedy.
em•pa•thy (ˈɛm pə θi)
n.
1. the identification with or vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, etc., of another.
You don't do that sort of shit for anybody for no reason.
you don't have to know someone directly to feel empathy.
Nobody said you did. But you don't automatically become empathetic for a faceless, nameless person that died in a remote place.
tell me how these two [] have a better understanding of empathy than i do.
Does my giving you a definition of the word suffice to make you understand how much I think you know of the word?

Colton Wright

aahaha you're an asshole. If you have the resources to shitpost on Sup Forums, you can chip in a few bucks to a kumamoto relief.
You're getting edgy replies since you are completely grandstanding over an accidental breach of etiquette (not like the authors need to mention the quakes in every public comment they make; they all probably put out a page or tweet already). Saying you can't help and going after the mangaka for a poorly-organized comments page is blatant brownie points behavior.

Levi Peterson
Levi Peterson

if what you said is true, then we would never be allowed to feel anything unless we act on it.
Nice strawman. No one ever said that.

You're free to "feel" whatever you want to feel. It's not a problem until you start calling people "autistic" or "assholes" for not expressing all their "feelings" the way you do.

We point out the superficiality of your "condolences" to help you understand that we're not actually depriving the world of anything valuable if we don't engage in masturbatory outpourings of emotion on the internet. So you have no reason to be mad.

Do you really think it's coincidence that the guy whose hometown was hit posted a different kind of response to the disaster than the other guys?
You are just blindly attacking anybody who even appears to show any kind of sympathy for an author of a big3. In other words, you are paranoid.
This is a WSJ thread. All the mangaka are publishing in WSJ. It wouldn't have made a difference in the quality of the fanboyism no matter which mangaka it was.
Calm down.

if i had the resources to spare, if i was japanese, i would.
So you're playing the empathy card, while using the fact you arent Japanese as an excuse to not act.
but i don't have and i'm not, so i don't.
You have plenty of resources to spare, you can lie witout so much but the thing is, you dont want to. You dont want to sacrifice anything while still pretending you care.
Not sacrificng anyhting is fine, I dont give a fuck about most places/events. But pretending you care when you arent doing a damn thing, thats what pisses me off.

You may call people here edgy and maybe they are. But I think edgy people are much better than cunts. Because thats what you are, you're a cunt who engages in slacktivism and tries to turn a tragedy into a way to improve your image. Thats far worse than any edgy jokes. So while you try to look down on people who dont care, the fact is you're below us. The best part is while many people broadcast their "prayers" others actually help out, but silently. Because thats true charity.

Please stop with the ampathy bullshit, saying how you feel for these people. Because excluding those like you, the rest of us can see exactly what a cunt you are.
