Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be the person you vilify and dehumanise? What is it like to be “them,” those “others” who do bad things, or who hold different beliefs to us.
Humanity has been at war for thousands of years. We don’t know how to solve global problems like crime or terrorism, which are the symptoms and the outgrowth of social conditions and other troubling circumstances. Taking a moment to consider what it’s like to be another, is a powerful way to build bridges in a conflicted world.
Here Charles Eisenstein shares how we can be an agent of change in a turbulent world.
