The Battle for Compassion
IN-DEPTH VIDEOS, 1 Aug 2016
The Battle for Compassion is a short film by Jonathan Leighton about what matters and how we can have greater impact in shaping a gentler future for our planet. The film draws on key ideas from his book The Battle for Compassion: Ethics in an Apathetic Universe. He advocates the reduction of intense human and animal suffering as our highest ethical priority, and the creation of compassionate and rational decision-making structures that meet the needs of all.
