This is true. For these people, something called “repentance” is relevant. Just because you don’t feel remorse, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. There’s plenty of people who commit serious crimes who don’t feel remorseful or hurting at all. What’s society’s response to that? Sympathy and understanding at such coldness and cruelty? Not.
The solution is to reawaken their sense of right and wrong and to help them develop their consciences properly.
It’s not without surprise that we see such an attitude emanating from the Political Studies department of a Canadian University, where truth and decency are not exactly high commodities and where equivocations and relativism reign on high.
