Goodness and Compassion

How good or evil a person is has less to do with innate virtue and more to do with opportunity and example. If we want people to be good, we need to make sure their basic needs are met. The only other solution is to kill them, and so far we have not found a way to do that that does not harm us, too.

There is no limit to what happy, well-fed, well-loved people can accomplish working together.

I am not naive. My compassion is logical and evidence-based.

If the suffering and problems of other people overwhelms you because you have too much suffering of your own, that’s okay. I will be the compassion champion for you, too.
