Welcome to a brand new SteynPost in which Mark addresses one of the curious phenomena of the age: the more the left talks about "empathy", the less they have of it - to the point where the ability to imagine, never mind "tolerate", anyone who thinks differently is increasingly beyond them.

SteynPosts and our other video content are made possible through the support of members of The Mark Steyn Club, for which we are very grateful. Among the pleasures of membership is that you can enjoy our TV content in any medium you desire: video, audio or text. So, if you'd rather sample the above in non-visual form, please log-in here. We're excited to announce that our entire run of SteynPosts, starting with the very first edition, is now available in audio. You can find all those, plus some of the more memorable editions of The Mark Steyn Show, over in our Audio & Transcripts department.
That said, if you enjoy Steyn in visual form, we'll have a special pre-Valentine treat for you this weekend.
Speaking of The Mark Steyn Club, Rush listeners may remember that a while back Mark took a call from Natalie, a 15-year-old Steyn fan in Montana, who said she'd been saving up from her summer job to buy a Mark Steyn Club membership. Mark's cold, dead heart melted and he impulsively gave her a Club membership for her 16th birthday - which got him thinking that SteynOnline readers might also have friends or family members who'd appreciate a Steyn Club gift membership. So we're pleased to offer a special Gift Membership package that includes your choice of a handsome hardback or double-CD set personally autographed by Mark.
Steyn Club members can also hit the comment threads and tear Mark's arguments to pieces. So please log-in and fire away. If you haven't yet experienced the delights of The Mark Steyn Club, you'll find more information here.
