Fighting For A World Of Less Fighting

Jun 28, 2019

Maybe it's not easy to be kind to people with whom you disagree, but it's possible.  Case in point: the former neo-Nazis who help their former comrades leave hate groups behind. 

That's just one example psychologist Jamil Zaki provides in his book The War for Kindness: Building Empathy in a Fractured World.  Building empathy?  Yes, Zaki points out that empathy is not fixed at birth, it's learned. 

The author lays out the details. 

Bonus feature: even without the book, you can take the #kindnesschallenge.  Posts begin July 8, 2019.
