The Global Urgency of Everyday Empathy: John Marshall Roberts

The era of empathy is upon us, says John Marshall Roberts. And not just in some touchy-feely, group-hugging way.

In this TEDx video, he makes a strong case for empathy, drawing on history, humility, and a good sense of humor.

What do you think? Is he on track? Or is this too simple or too vague of a concept to actually ignite change in our world?

You can also join the conversation with John on Twitter.
