celebrating diversity in a historically homogeneous community: feedback please!

Brainstorming with friends tonight, we wondered how we can bring together our diverse neighbors in a welcoming way. 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.

In the opening pages of his last book, published posthumously in 1913, the natuaralist and polymath Albert Russel Wallace (a co-developer, alongside Darwin, of the theory of evolution) observed that "that which at one time and place is held to be right and proper is, at another time or place, considered to be not only wrong, but one of the greatest of crimes" (Social Environment and Moral Progress, p. 8).  Examples of policies and actions illustrating Wallace's point are all too…

Since the beginning of time, people have had religion to give them a more fulfilling and purposeful life.

The Favour Bank

Today, the world faces numerous ethical challenges; abortion, drug testing on animals and euthanasia among others. Varying opinions are exuded as to what the greatest could be. Why don’t we analyse one quite major but often side-lined, deeply inaugurated into our day to day lives; the favour bank.

What is the favour bank? To illustrate, travel with me if you may; Maria, with all necessary qualifications to be a university lecturer, in fact, more qualified than some already employed in…

COULD IT BE EGOCENTRISM?

As if I envisioned a tendency to write on this topic that I once concerned myself with the human situation.

I wake up to dawn in a nondescript town etched somewhere on the Nigerian map. The sun is wrapped in a shroud of glory only the iconic pens of Chinua Achebe and William Shakespeare can effectively describe. The natural…
