1 Planet volunteer Joseph Finnerty is the founder of Pareto Politics (www.paretopolitics.com) a community where diverse political ideologies converge to learn from each other in order to break the gridlock of political divides.
This picture he took in Rincon, Puerto Rico, and the recent mass shooting that took place in Charleston by Dylann Roof, inspired him to write his latest article: "CAN WE OVERCOME THE CHARLESTON SHOOTING?"
"The goal should not be to completely eliminate it, because we will never reach that pinnacle of mankind, thus in the end failing. Instead, the world needs to work towards the inclusiveness of different races, religions, genders, and politics to limit the desire for wickedness."
- Joseph Finnerty
