“It is very easy to overestimate the importance of our own achievements in comparison with what we owe others.” --Dietrich Bonhoeffer The Revolution Ethics Project conducts seminars for people of all ages who want to see the world anew and make the world a little better. Led by instructor Eric Bowman, the group meets for reading, hearty discussion, intellectual growth and a few laughs. Studying some history, philosophy, religion, and literature, we look at current social issues, ethical scenarios, and our own attitudes in an attempt to bring about meaningful change in the world. Through activities and discussion we will hope to inspire each other to be a little less cynical and to work towards solutions to the world’s problems—or maybe just the problems that are closest to us. We will seek to show that everything we do matters, and that “morality” isn’t a topic limited to philosophy class or faith communities. The next leaders of society will not just be cunning businessmen or ambitious politicians—they will be hopeful, thoughtful, kind-hearted people. February 2014: Revolution Ethics Project Announces Program at Peterborough Town Library The Revolution is pleased to announce a program at the Peterborough Town Library titled "Lying, Secrecy, and Keeping us Safe." This community conversation will be held in the conference room on the lower floor of the library on three consecutive Thursdays, beginning Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. We will continue the conversation on Feb 20 and 27 **Please note: Session 2 of the program, originally scheduled for Thursday February 13 has been postponed due to the expected snow storm. The program will continue on February 20 and 27. I hope this topic will focus on the recent controversies surrounding the NSA and racial profiling, among others. The conversations are free and open to the public. Space is somewhat limited. For more information, email us!
