The demographics in this historically homogeneous community are shifting, and we are glad for that, but are concerned they might feel isolated.We have some ideas for a community event, but I am interested in hearing your thoughts and ideas as well. See More

.....the president of my country made an abhorrent statement the other day. please accept my apologies, on behalf of my friends and family. his words and deeds are NOT a reflection of anyone i know. our hearts are broken over his shameful comments.

Fight for Liberty, with Max Boot, Philip Bobbitt, Garry Kasparov, & Bret Stephens

We live in a time when liberal democracy is on the defensive, not only in the U.S. but around the world. Yet these speakers, whose roots reflect the political spectrum, are optimistic that having a fresh discussion on moral values and basic principles such as freedom of speech, a free press, and the rule of law can help bring democracy back to health. Don't miss this valuable discussion.

Global Ethics Weekly: Science Fiction, Micro-democracy, & Information, with Malka Older

Malka Older has spent time as an aid worker in Darfur, Indonesia, and Japan, as was discussed in last week's podcast, but she also has another role: science fiction novelist. Her latest book, "State Tectonics," is the third in a series that explores the concepts of "micro-democracy" and a "global information management bureacracy" in the near future. How have separatists from East Timor to Catalonia influenced Older's novels?
