Development of “civilized man

Why and how does the development of “civilized man” (or “artificial” man) stifle natural pity? Why is the absence of pity a problem in the developed civil society?
Quality of answer:
In addressing the question, be sure to explain the role of natural pity.
It is NOT enough to state that natural pity is eroded, or to use a quotation to that effect. . You should carefully discuss the “why” and the “how” of the erosion of natural pity as well as explain why it is a problem.
