"what the hell is evil?"

A message from Susan Murphy:
We live in a time when the word ‘evil’ is being endlessly batted about by our politicians, in ways that look quite nakedly self-serving.  Just as though we all know and agree what that powerful word means.  But do we?   

Certainly we can identify acts that repel us so strongly we reach for the word ‘evil’.  Yet we also seem able to live with acts of harm against other people, creatures and the environment itself without being so moved.  What is going on?  How do we go about identifying appropriate moral agency - including in ourselves - without doing so in a way that ignorantly demonises other people?

Please come and contribute to an open discussion about this important question with a panel of community members who have given it some serious thought.
Global Contact presents:
 

WHAT THE HELL IS EVIL?
 

                                         ~ An uncomfortable topic?
                                         ~ Politically incorrect to talk about?
                                         ~ Too ‘big” to think about let alone “fix”?
                                         ~ A conversation well overdue?
 
Perhaps ! - Join our four speakers and Interlocutor - Susan Murphy to reflect and explore this timely question and its potential for change.
   ~      
”the line separating good & evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor 
 between political parties either -- but right through every human heart -- and  
 through all human hearts.”
