The following cite does not appear to support the claim very well: "In short, neurological and behavioral studies show that violence reduces with high empathetic reactions. In contrast antisocial individuals have a diminished sense of remorse and lack the ability to empathize (Blair & Charney, 2003)" The cited article talks about wiring diagrams for hot-blooded aggression, not empathy.

Copyvio[edit source]

Noticing a reference to "Box 2" in the article, on a hunch, I googled "Yanasampanno Forest Monastery in Thailand (See Box 2)" and found [1]. Our resource seems to be an exact copy of this source.

The course begins with This Course is based mainly on "The Psychology of Nonkilling", chapter prepared by Professor V. K. Kool (State University of New York) and Professor Rita Agrawal (Guru Nanak Dev University) for Toward a Nonkilling Paradigm (Honolulu: Center for Global Nonkilling, 2009). The Course is part of the Interdisciplinary Program on Nonkilling Studies at the School of Nonkilling Studies. That is the book picked up in the Google search.

This resource is interwiki linked from w:Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows. As this page may be deleted for copyvio, someone should also remove the Wikipedia link. (however, I'm replacing the present text with a link to a free copy, and this page may invite discussion here.)

The book has a Creative Commons License-Attribution-Non commercial-no derivative works 3.0. I do not believe that this license is compatible with our site license. It was certainly a problem that this was here without notice that it is a license violation to modify it without permission.

It was also a misrepresentation to claim that this was "based mainly" on that chapter of the book. It appears to be a more or less exact copy.

I will replace the page with a notice that the book may be downloaded from the publisher web site, at http://nonkilling.org/node/18#Paradigm --Abd (discusscontribs) 23:54, 20 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
