The Battle for Compassion - a short film by Jonathan Leighton

Jonathan Leighton

The Battle for Compassion is a film about what matters and how we can have greater impact in shaping a gentler future for our planet. The film draws on key ideas from my book The Battle for Compassion: Ethics in an Apathetic Universe. I advocate the reduction of intense human and animal suffering as our highest ethical priority, and the creation of compassionate and rational decision-making structures that meet the needs of all.
