Most Good, Least Harm: A Simple Principle for a Better World and a Meaningful Life

When all the cans in your home have been recycled—when you compost, grow your own vegetables, and bike to work—will that be enough? The recent influx of ‘green’ products, lifestyle choices, and ideas is a good herald for the kind of world we have the potential to create. But it doesn’t address the core of why we’ve got the world we have now. The solution is Most Good, Least Harm by humane educator and author Zoe Weil.

Most Good, Least Harm offers a simple approach to all the challenges that confront our world today, and the people, animals, and ecosystems that are affected. People today are filled with hope and eager to participate in positive change that enriches their own lives as they make a difference for others.

Humane Education is more than just ethics and environmentalism. It’s about choosing the Most Good—MOGO—for every interaction you do. By understanding the potential for amazing, unlimited change within ourselves, we suddenly become aware that our homes, communities, cities, countries, and even the world can be affected by the actions of one person. Rather than feeling overwhelmed by guilt for buying a product or not recycling that can, readers can immediately grasp solutions that make the political personal—and take their power to a whole new level.
