Empathic Civilization

I saw a YouTube video today that really moves me. Check it out. Type in The Empathic Civilization. It is a brief lecture by Jeremy Rifkin, illustrated in a very creative way, addressing a controversy ubiquitous among us as humans – are we natural amoral competitors, killers and aggressors, or is there inherent morality and goodness at the core of us? I appreciated this argument, and it is really fun to watch. The last statements that he shared I particularly enjoyed given my recent trip to Kenya. Our species was born in Africa. We are all one family, with one set of parents and Africa is our continent of origin. See what you think of what he says.
