Be Kinder to Yourself, Save the World

Capitalism — the driving force behind climate change — thrives on our shame and self-hatred

Dreams of perfection are fatal to social change movements. Despite their vision of a better society, such movements are made up of idealists who are far from perfect. They are attempting to change a society that has already profoundly conditioned them to believe themselves unworthy of love, and the system to be incapable of change.
