Empathy & Revenge

Murder of Agamemnon, by Pierre-Narcisse Guérin. January 1817. Clytemnestra hesitates before killing the sleeping Agamemnon. On the left, Aegisthus urges her on.

The Atlantic has a story about how caring about people makes you a vicious killer. Ok, I exaggerate a little, but I recognize many of the described reactions and techniques.
