CANCELLED – “Radical Positivity: An Ethical Humanist Approach”
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, BES will not hold platform on Sunday, March 15th nor Sunday, March 22nd. While we are saddened to cancel our regular platforms, the health and safety of our members and our community is a priority. We will post updates on our future events as the situation develops.
Moral progress depends upon the ever increasing capacity to respect and appreciate everyone – friend and foe alike – and to maintain commitment to the Common Goods that would make life better for everyone. To do that we need to find ways to transcend the conflicts and disagreements that pit people against one another and a way to do that is to use positive action to pursue positive ends and, to the degree possible, avoid giving into impulses to argue, complain or fight. Let’s talk about how to get there.
