Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all creation.2. The Most Compassionate. The Most Merciful. I truly comprehend this statement of “compassion is the answer”, it’s the only way to kill the cycle of violence. I was discussing this with my manager last year “Compassion kills the cycle of violence”. October 6, 2018 Reply Benji R. III I agree with Monibiot's views a great deal, as I've observed much of the same via the spread of global capitalism, as it is slowly but surely eradicating the various cultures of the world, replacing any other values, with the pursuit of wealth itself, or other means (social capital). I too believe in the narrative as prime mover in humanity, and fully believe that it can work, as civilization has evolved based on the changes in human perception. The only problem that I see, is that through things like social media, people's personalities are becoming more toxic, as they develop the neuroses of narcissism and sociopathy, in the pursuit of what's seen as a success in this culture. Problems like this aren't so easily erased, and with the groundwork already existing for people of the caliber to rise to leadership, they create large obstacles to creating meaningful connections, as such people economize superficiality. Those of us who can see this need for change, need to actually start gathering, and making connections based upon humanist principles. Valueing each other based on the strength of our character, and not just what skill set serves the hierarchy best as we do currently. Still, getting over that hump would only be the start of the work we need to do to secure the future of the human race, I only hope we're able to get there soon.

October 10, 2018 Reply David Blake I agree with the basic tenet of what is being said here. Neoliberalism has failed. But a) This is a documentary that starts with a proposition and sets out to prove it's true and b) The Italian villages are not credible examples of what things could be like if we were more of a community showing compassion etc. Printing your own money? We need some sort of realistic way to run an economy. Sustainable jobs etc. And yes I know central banks in the 'real' economy have been printing money like mad in recent years.

Making revolution, and bringing Communism to the peasants… Sure millions of them would die but, this is the cost of progress, and making world a better place 🙂 Are you going to produce one documentary about a sane person?
