A modern experiment with Stoicism

http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/philosopherszone/modern-day-stoicism/5896364

I would say that Stoicism allowed me to take a step back and REALLY look at things even if it has not been anything close to my solution.  Sometimes anger is better than acceptance when it comes to things like social change but I would argue that our ancestors may have sometimes been more “Stoic” than we sometimes believe.  It is also useful for seeing a “brotherhood of man” and moving beyond pure tribalism.
