The compassionate human “sat shaking its head, distressed by hearing what was said by humans who lied and distorted facts and unconscionably committed barbaric acts…” 
“…Powers keep on lyin’
While your people keep on dyin’…” (from Higher Ground by Stevie Wonder) 
“Compassion and ethics!  Where now were they?  Why were they so lacking in life today? It seemed that for humans a major new creed now embraced selfishness, cruelty and greed and the worship of humans who weren’t very smart, who’d destroy the world or at least play a part …” The compassionate human “saw countries with too much to eat, but feeding the starving was too hard a feat.”

The practice of forcing parents and children apart was an abhorrent act that broke the human’s heart.  There is sadly no need to debate that too many humans are full of hate. 
There have been so many events that were wrong, that have occurred without shame for so long.

“Good brains humans had originally had. Were they now stupid or had they gone mad?
The compassionate human” looked down at some rivers below, so filled with trash they could just barely flow. The human was saddened and let out a sigh. Tears rolled down its cheeks as it started to cry.  Was the cruel environment created by a sociopath (psychopath) who chose to afflict the world with its wrath?  Well, my fellow humans, we dare confront world EVIL and show that you care.

“…You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today..
Don’t punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see …” (What’s Goin’ On”1971) by Marvin Gaye.
