The Essence of True Humanity Is Compassion (The ETHIC)

“John Morlino [founder of The ETHIC] delivers a profound message that needs to be heard. He explores the fundamental principles of humanity and challenges us to confront the most difficult questions that we as people face. In doing so, he awakens our spirit of compassion and guides us toward a kinder, gentler world.” – Brenda Davis, RD, co-author of Becoming Vegetarian and Becoming Vegan.


A note from The ETHIC’s founder, John Morlino:

As we look around the world today, we can’t help but notice that violence toward both humans and animals has become, for many people, a socially acceptable form of human behavior. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

I founded The ETHIC to inspire and empower people to embrace the principles of unconditional compassion. The talks and presentations you’ll find on this website may be divided into different topics, but, ultimately, each one reflects a single goal: To create a world where all beings live free from violence and oppression.

On this site, you’ll find articles and presentations about animal liberation, human rights (with a particular emphasis on the genocide in Darfur), unconditional compassion, and gun violence, as well as observations on the nature of being human.  You can see an example of one of my presentations by clicking on the “play” arrow in the box above.
