“Everything we touched, we killed.”

I was recently made aware of the existence of an incredible man, Ernesto Sirolli. How I didn’t know about him before is a mystery, as he holds very similar values to mine.

“We western people are imperialist, colonialist missionaries, and there are only two ways we deal with people: we either patronise them, or we are paternalistic.” – Ernesto Sirolli

Ernesto gave a TED Talk in 2012, and his humour combined with insightfulness makes this talk very easy to listen to. Take 15 minutes out of your day to learn about why listening is the best thing we can do when it comes to helping others.
