Father, bless. "And, in turn, such apatheia produces discernment -- the discernment that alone can provide the wisdom and sensibility for decision-making in the crazy sort of age this is. Without discernment, leadership is left with bankrupt devices like 'the bottom line,' or surveys, or census data, or consultations." Why are apatheia and dispassion so often described as something "cold," "unyielding," and "distant"? I'm thinking of the expression, for example, of "a dispassionate eye," which seems to connote some sort of "objectivity."
