At the premier of #WeAreManyMovie a film about the stop the war movement from 2013 until now. You need to see it - it is a powerful demonstration of the failings that are possible in government and the effect that protest can have in the long term. I'm very proud of my friend Jahlia Osha who was involved in its making.

Why are organisms altruistic? Groups of altruists are more successful than other groups. Different groups will still fight, and a bastard may still exist in a group. Groups can be considered up the scale to countries and down the scale to genes. Evolution can be considered in terms of culture as well as genes. Ideally we want to be altruistic at the largest group scales. Altruism is not sacrifice, it is about the outcome. Morality is what coerces people to be altruistic, perhaps beyond their natural empathy.
