A story too good to invent

We could actually abandon all laws talking about life between individuals and replace them by just one single principle: charity.
Torture, murder, homicide, theft or fraud can all be eliminated right away through active charity. But nowadays only very few people on this planet seem to be willing and able to practice charity. Charity is based on the ability to put oneself in somebody else's place. My work is an attempt to encourage people to put themselves in somebody else's shoes.
This also extends to the area of abuse, because what is the purpose of newspaper headlines? It is much more important to ask oneself: 'What does it mean to me? And what can I do to change it and help other people?'
