I don't think empathy implies love. It's possible to understand how others feel without having any attachment to them. I think this was researched in regards to psychopaths, who may actually have a strong empathy ability, but can emotionally distance themself.

 

So you're saying we should optimize CS curriculum to ethical psychopaths ;)

Jokes aside, I think that's fair.
