Great Discussions 2017 is a highly participatory course designed for those informed and thoughtful people among us who love to engage in real discussion and respectful debate over issues of the day. This course is a forum for exchanging ideas about international and domestic public affairs and America's place in the world.
This one-session course is the last of three sessions of Great Discussions 2017 that is being offered in January, February and March. LLCC offers this discussion series often. The topics discussed change during the year to coincide with world and domestic events and the interests of the participants.
Participants will discuss current international and domestic issues and events and geo-political trends that affect us as citizens of the world and as Americans. Participation is limited to 28. You may register for this course each time that it is announced during the year.
Great Discussions is modeled after the Foreign Policy Association's Great Decisions program that LLCC offered in the past.
This course is designed to be responsive and flexible to the issues of the world. Discussions will be active responses to changing circumstances throughout the world. The topic covered during this session of Great Discussions will be moral philosophy a branch of philosophy that involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct.
The subject of this meeting will be Moral Imperatives, Resistance and Civil Disobedience
Is resistance to political danger futile or not futile? Is civil disobedience effective? Are resistance and civil disobedience imperative to the survival of our democratic republic?
We have secured the services of a stellar subject matter expert for this discussion: Stew Jenkins is the head of the SLO County ACLU. Stew grew up in SLO, attended San Luis High, and graduated from Cal Poly. He attended law school in San Diego before returning to the Central Coast to practice law for the last 25 years. His philosophy: Government of the People, by the People and for the People shall not perish. Our democracy is something that we build together every day. Thousands of people in our area get up every morning feeling there is nothing they can do, no vote they can cast, and no action they can take that will make any difference. I want to help them to restore their hope, their trust, and their control over their democracy. Speaker one hour and Discussion one hour.
The participants will receive a study guide prior to the class from your course leader Paul Worsham.
While Paul Worsham's education and career focused on consumer electronics marketing, he has a deep and active interest in world affairs and America's place in the world.
