Platform: Replacing Magical Thinking with Rational Discourse: How Can Freethinkers Help Restore Democracy?
January 31 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
As we face this historical moment, when cult thinking and fake news have fueled an attempted insurrection, grassroots organizing gives us hope in the future of multiracial democracy and we reflect on the intellectual traditions supporting a free society. What do our shared values lead us to do now in order to cultivate a world in which we bring out the best in each other and ideas are allowed to flourish without threat of violence? A panel of ‘freethinkers’ from within our movement will draw from philosophy, history, and Ethical Culture. They are Dr. David Sprintzen, professor emeritus at Long Island University, Christian Hayden, leader-in-training at the Ethical Society of St. Louis, and Jone Johnson Lewis, leader at the Riverdale-Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture.
This American Ethical Union All Societies platform will be held at the Washington Ethical Society and we will participate via Zoom. The link will be in the Weekly Announcements email and on the members-only Facebook page. In addition, it may be obtained by emailing email@example.com
