The Empathic Civilisation

I am often described (sometimes by myself) as naïve, an idealist and a utopian.

I’ve watched this animated RSA video of Jeremy Rifkin speaking about a move towards a more empathic civilisation countless times.

Here’s a sample of his talk: “When we’re talking about building an empathic civilization, we’re not talking about Utopia, we’re talking about the ability of human beings to show solidarity – not only with each other, but with our fellow creatures who share our one and only life on this little planet.”
