Social Justice

In The Compassionate Instinct: The Science of Human Goodness, Dacher Keltner and his colleagues at the University of California Berkley have shown that we are not exclusively selfish beings, as our current economic model assumes; we are also instinctually compassionate (Keltner, 2010). The spiritual work of Wen Len in Hawaii (Vitale & Len, 2008), and the innovative work done in Norwegian, Dutch, Swedish, and Rwandan prisons are worthy of consideration (Aleem, 2015; Alexander 2016; Benko, 2015; Taylor, 2016). When we treat prisoners compassionately, the need for prisons is diminished.
