Legal but Harmful provides a new way of thinking about:
- why we behave as we do;
- how we form and change beliefs;
- why truth, facts, logic and reason FAIL!
- how beliefs shape behaviour;
- what is right and wrong;
- why top down training and communication fail; and
- changing mind set and behaviour.
Our approach integrates:
- the role of inherited biological behavioural drivers and how they impact cognitive decision making and behaviour;
- the reasons why fact, truth and logic fail to change beliefs;
- the limitations of behavioural models based on religions, philosophies and laws in our globalised interconnected world;
- how harm and the Harm Principle bridge the chasm dividing differing cultures, mores and legal systems.
