Let's say that a virus spread throughout the world and damaged the areas of the brain that are responsible for emotions. The entire population was affected and could no longer experience any emotional reactions, although their reason and intellectual ability was unimpaired.
Would morality change if we no longer have any emotional reaction to cheaters, thiefs, inequity, or tragedy?
Maybe it's difficult to answer such a hypothetical, but any opinions would be appreciated.
