We do not include 'the ability to assess the effects of our actions on other' in our concept of intelligence. Yet surely it is one of the most imporatant aspects of true intelligence.

Anyone who doen not or cannot evaluate the effects of his/her actions on the feelings and lives of others is at best a nuisance and at worst a disaster. And is surely a malfunctioning human? This applies to an even greater degree on a national and global scale.

If the effects of my actions and choices on the lives od other humans across the planet are of no significance for me, what right have I to claim to be 'intelligent' at all?
