Empathy and Psychopathy

It doesn’t need to be easy. We can make you sweat, make you work, tease you to make you think that you won’t get what you expect. Life is like that; art is like that. I’m sorry if I don’t make it easy for you. In life, antisocial behavior can work, but in art never. In art, even villians are sympathetic, unless of course, like failed human beings, it’s failed art.
