Empathy

Abstract

President Ronald Regan was moved. He had just viewed a private screening of The Day After, a 1983 television movie chronicling the aftermath of a nuclear exchange with the USSR. Regan reportedly developed such a sense of empathy with the fictional, irradiated residents of Missouri that, soon after the screening, he began nuclear disarmament talks with the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
