Next English Discussion on Sunday, 5/30 3pm

Hello! Our next English Discussion meeting will be held at The Studio, on Sunday May 30th at 3pm.

This article was written by J.K. Rowling, of Harry Potter fame. In this article written in April, she is discussing the issues in the General Election that took place this spring in Britain—mainly the vilification of single mothers that routinely happens in the press, particularly around election time. I think it addresses the question of what happens when society supports particular lifestyle choices, and does not support others. How should government and society support people? Should social services and tax breaks be extended? Should these be tied to supporting or castigating behaviours and lifestyles?
How else should the problem of economic inequality be handled?

二OO七年Carruch ibn Michael在華盛頓州Port Townsend城,針對「情緒」所進行的一系列演講。當時,該系列演講被錄製下來並以mp3形式發行在Carol Steinel的網站上,網站名稱為Cosmic Laugh。
「思,生活」工作室取得該系列演說中文翻譯允許,同時我們將從5月10日開始一連五個星期一的晚上以討論的形式來傳遞這些訊息。
演說的翻譯會在討論會前約一個星期的時間刊登在「思,生活工作室」部落格上。在實際的討論會上,我們則有機會澄清或進一步了解這些概念。
Carruch ibn Michael對情緒所提出看法與我們所接觸過的任何系統有很大的差異,不過似乎這對於做為人的我們,是相當實用的方法。
以下是我們5月24日要討論的Carruch第三次演講,「生氣」。
