I think this is actually related to the argument about Ron Paul's moral significance that Bob Wright posted at the Atlantic.
Yes, I think Bob got it right that our tendency toward exceptionalism (a form of narcissism/xenophobia/ethnocentrism) is precisely the force that suppresses our ability to take the perspective (empathize) of others. To the degree that we are narcissistic jingoists, we are oblivious to the needs and aspirations of others.
