How Do We Teach Children Compassion and Empathy?
Compassion and empathy are not traits that can be taught. They must be felt, absorbed and experienced by the child for it to sink in. Since this is the case, the parent must exhibit these traits for the child to exhibit these traits. It is vital that the parent always show compassion and empathy around their child for if a child does not have these traits, a different issue arises.

Is arts education something that should be school/ government supported, or community supported?
Art should be integrated in schools; since it is a valuable way to foster creativity. As for who should fund it, that is a more difficult question. Because of the budget shortages for schools, such programs get overlooked. It would do the youth good if the communities try and make up the difference, and provide creative stimulation for students. Such stimulation would have profound effects on the youth, that would manifest almost immediately. Without a balance between state funding and community funding, such programs will not fare well or make any noticeable impact.

How should the world respond to the Middle East?
Thanks Hamza, really appreciate it! As for your question, the blame for all this unrest cannot be attributed to one nation or group of people. The blame however can be attributed to the blending of so many cultures over the years. Which in turn caused many problems for the people of the Middle East. Then after the discovery of all the natural gas and crude oil, the western world turned its eye to the region and ignorantly handled this new discovery.

How should the world respond to the Middle East?
Unrest generally being the wars, the diplomatic tensions, the cultural differences, the recent revolutions, Islam against Israel, the Palestinian question, the Israeli question, etc. Unfortunately, I could write a paragraph about what is defined as unrest in the Middle East. However, thank you for making me specify; I was vague in my opening statement for this debate. The second part of your question I'm afraid I don't understand. If you could clarify a bit for me then I maybe be able to answer your question.

Catholicism opposes the equality of women
I would like to point out that the equivalent to a nun in the catholic hierarchy is a monk not a priest. Monks take similar vows, such as the vow of poverty and in some cases more extreme vows, such as the vow of silence. To compare a priest to a nun is not a good comparison.

How should the world respond to the Middle East?
I agree that's the prime scenario. However, since the world has become so dependent upon this global economy that has been created, if one part, such as the Middle East, is thrown into turmoil then the entire global economy is thrown into turmoil. Can this be allowed to happen? For the global economy to remain intact some degree of foreign interference is necessary in the region. Unless absolutely necessary full scale occupations are not the answer, but some small type of interference is critical for the safety of the global economy.
