VISÃO\\VI5I0NTHNG's insight:

“Love Hate & Everything in Between”, a new documentary exploring the importance of empathy in today’s ever interconnected world.

“If we don’t learn to relate with one another, we are a failed society.”

The program involves periodically taking infants to elementary schools where students become attached to the babies and learn to empathize, ultimately raising their emotional and social consciousness.

en believe by telling them to drop that and believe something else," she says. Since then, she says, she's found that you can't change what ANYONE believes by telling them to drop that and believe something else. This applies to understanding of the physics of the world around us, people's ideas of their own capacities, finding the multiple layers of a poem, complex political questions.
