On Root Causes and Symptoms

On Root Causes and Symptoms

There are a thousand hacking at the branches of
evil to one who is striking at the root.
Henry David Thoreau

An outstanding talk by Vicente Hao Chin, Jr, entitled On Root Causes and Symptoms, has just been made available for public viewing on the internet by the Audio-Visual Department of the TS in America.  It is of direct interest to TOS members in their work.  We cannot recommend it too highly!

Many reform programs address the symptoms of social problems but not their roots.  In this talk, Vic Hao Chin addresses the deeper causes of social and human problems and outlines five principles through which efforts to undertake reforms will be more permanent in their effect.  Vic gives extensive examples of historical and contemporary issues to illustrate the application of each principle.

Vic Hao Chin is the Chairperson of the TOS Foundation in the Philippines.  He has given seminars and talks on social and individual transformation in many countries.
