Society from the bottom up
By Robert Hinde
The shortcomings in our society need more than readjustments to our political, financial, and legal institutions. There must be a better regard for morality at every level, from individuals to government. This book explores the nature of our morality. It identifies how changes can be made so that each of us takes responsibility for looking after each other and our planet, and shows that a better society is within our power.
