“The State Of Empathy” We have traded Empathy for Apathy & Fear – I have deciphered the handwriting on the wall and it says “Empathy” – The State of Empathy, a work-in-progress documentary, is at the same time a question, a reflection, a commentary an indictment, on who we are as individuals and as a society past, present and sadly it’s our future too! – Our goal is to take back the future, to plant thought-provoking seeds that nuture a culture of empathy, to seed Empathy Centers in all our institutions, education, community center, criminal injustice system, government, business, mental health center etc… as well as to transform the police into Empathy Crisis Squads – There is a long heart-felt need to create a culture that thrives and is about Care & Caring because “We the People of the Future” are hungry and need us to create more humane and respon-able culture – We have numbed and dumbed down ourselves to the point that our very humanity and our environment is endangered and we are like the frog in slow boiling water, believing in our own propaganda – unless we take back our future! we will remain on the top of the endangered species list and not know it – We believe we need to gather resources to re-educate society to be more empathetic in general if we want to have a more humane, peaceful and caring, innovative society – We also believe that those who are returning to freedom from prison or war or whatever, they need an empathetic society to welcome them with open arms or we will have to protect ourselves from them with lethal arms – Food for thought – more at about
