Over the weekend, I had a live-streamed discussion with my podcast partner and friend, Donovan Badrock, AKA Mr Oz Atheist. We discussed the shootings that occurred recently in Christchurch, New Zealand and then we moved on to talk about effective ways of changing the minds of others.
It’s never easy to discuss these tragedies after they happen and we’d so much rather they didn’t happen, but I think it’s very important to talk about the potential causes. Is there a way we can change our own rhetoric and behaviour to lower the odds of this happening again? How can we prevent future tragedies like the one that happened in New Zealand from happening again? Is it even possible? Donovan and I discuss the answers to these questions and many more while taking comments and questions from the live audience.
We’d love to know what your thoughts are on these topics. Leave your comments below as you watch us discuss them:
