The power of babies

One of the most fascinating articles I have read in quite a while.

Baby power!

If morality is biologically based (which I think it is), then this is the correct way to approach it. And guess what? It works!


  1. Sounds like a great program, I wonder how many children that are treated the same way as the infant when they are an infant innately contain a greater level of empathy. The green blanket (which represents new life and nature) seems silly.

  2. Ya, the symbolism is silly, but it's also a way to introduce a concept to the kids. That's what symbols are for.

    We don't really know the answer to your question, but we do know the opposite - about how not being treated with empathy affects children. It's called "attachment disorder."
