Compassion and why we Tarnish the Golden Rule

TED Talks are such a great resource!

So, Compassion.

What is this state of mind, how do we achieve it, how do we awaken it in others, how do we bring compassion to bear in all of our dealings?

Thank God there's someone who can talk coherently and secularly about this topic.

Robert Wright uses evolutionary biology and game theory to explain why we appreciate the Golden Rule ("Do unto others..."), why we sometimes ignore it and why there’s hope that, in the near future, we might all have the compassion to follow it.

Yes I learnt why I tarnish the Golden Rule and I also learnt a lot about Game Theory  - an unexpected bonus, finally understanding 0 Sum Games and Non Zero Sum Games.  This guy is smart.  Really smart.

It's about a 15 minute video, so choose your time to watch this - it's amazing. 

This is only the beginning. Get to know clarity. Email me, Mike Kennedy...
