Cynthia Lowen: Bullying at odds with human nuture

Showing deeply moving scenes from her documentary, Bully, Cynthia Lowen brought the crowd at IdeaFestival 2012 to a hushed silence on numerous occasions this afternoon.  

No, she does not believe we are hard-wired to bully - and explained why in her remarks.

This tweet during the session stood out for me.

"Bullying is in fact AT ODDS with our human nature. We need teamwork to survive" - Jeff Rider, @cloudwrangler on twitter.

Easily - my view - one of the more memorable presentations in recent IdeaFestival history. See the documentary!
