I don't think it's non sequitur, since that's the definition of a sick
puppy (=broken compassion circuitry). It seems Moravec and de Garis also
fit in that cathegory. Perhaps the field is self-selective.

It's mutual self restraint (consideration of other people's world view)
that makes this place livable.

Do you disagree?
