My name is John Kirbow. I am a speaker and lover of languages (including German, Arabic, Farsi, Spanish, Russian, Pashto, and Urdu, with lapsed Swahili, Serbian and Quechua). I have a longstanding passion for anthropology, culture and human cultural immersion. As the founder of Reason Revival, I focus on bringing science, empathy and reason into politics and sensitive social issues, to help “reason-based compassion” eventually become a wider movement, globally. I focus heavily on the issue of human rights and freedoms, and how we can use our best tools of dynamic social science, behavioral understanding, media, and cyber to help empower pockets of science, free-thought, and dissident voices across societies.
