Join the Melbourne Conversations Guest Curator Series with Dr Leslie Cannold and listen to a discussion about the topic, ‘Is it Treason to Have the Wrong Reason – A conversation about political and personal ethics.’
Ethics matter to all of us, but how can we tell right from wrong in a complex world?
Is ‘meaning well’ enough to make a decision the right one, or do actions speak louder than words? How do we judge the person who makes an evil choice for all the wrong reasons, but ends up doing good as a result?
From adoption in the 1960s, to ‘people-smugglers’ and the individual decisions we make to give to charity, join a panel of distinguished guests to discuss why acts, intentions and consequences often don’t line up, and whether we should even dare to judge in a morally messy world.
