How To End Injustice Everywhere | Dr. Melanie Joy Ph.D. | #200 HR Podcast

My Friend Dr. Melanie Joy, a Harvard-educated clinical and social psychologist, discusses her new book where she argues that all forms of injustice, including violence towards animals, humans, and the environment, share the same underlying structure and mentality. She also explores the concept of relational dysfunction, which stems from a non-relational mentality that disconnects individuals from their empathy and rational thoughts, leading to unjust actions and infighting within social movements. Dr. Joy emphasizes the importance of building relational literacy to combat this mentality and create a more relational world where dignity is honored for all beings. Additionally, Dr. Joy addresses the detrimental effects of infighting within the vegan community and the impacts of chronic disregulation on individuals and communication. She encourages individuals to prioritize self-regulation, clear communication, and emotional intelligence to reduce toxicity within movements and maintain productivity and effective engagement
