Joe Bichard Animates “The Myth of Responsibility” for the RSA
Extracted from a talk given at the RSA in London, a charity “which encourages the release of human potential to address the challenges that society faces.”
From the RSA: “Are we wholly responsible for our actions? We don’t choose our brains, our genetic inheritance, our circumstances, our milieu – so how much control do we really have over our lives? Philosopher Raoul Martinez argues that no one is truly blameworthy.
“Our most visionary scientists, psychologists and philosophers have agreed that we have far less free will than we think, and yet most of society’s systems are structured around the opposite principle – that we are all on a level playing field, and we all get what we deserve.”
