Empathy: Key to Effective Action (2.2017)

When we hear calls for empathy in politics, sometimes we think that this comes at the expense of effective action, or that it means letting racism, oppression, etc. slide. In this video Charles explains how it is actually quite the opposite -- how conditioned responses of fighting lock us into futile replays of the same old program. And, how empathy allows us to act from what is real, rather than from our projections about what the "other" us, opening a new domain of creative and effective response.
