IT’S IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THIS, SO WE’RE GIVING IT TO YOU FREE


Not much of politics at the moment seems driven by compassion: it’s politically useful to separate us from each other, and we are taught to be callous towards everyone from refugees to welfare claimants, even though at the basis of this disregard for others is a deep irrationality.  

It’s a subject Raoul Martinez wrote about brilliantly in his book Creating Freedom, and we wanted more people to be able to read his exploration of how and why our empathy is constrained, and how compassion can be a revolutionary act. 

So we made a small book, Empathy, and we want you to have it, for free, because it feels important (urgent, even). 

AMAZON, iBOOKS, KOBO and EPUB DIRECT DOWNLOAD

It’s an ebook – we’re not going to run out of copies – so, please, if you read it and it means as much to you as it does to us, then forward this email or the file on to a friend, or just tell them about it: the only way it will be read is if people spread the word.

All we’d like is to have as many people reading Raoul’s call for empathy and compassion as possible right now (particularly right now).

Thank you.
