 Recent and Upcoming Just Views Programs

 

Friday, April 14, 2017 at 7:20 pm: What about Wall Street's Fair Share & Taxing Trades?

 

The basic concern is that multinational corporations are paying less and less tax in the USA while working people are increasingly shouldering support for public services that benefit society and business and lubricate the economy. As the annual tax deadline looms, this program will explore corporate responsibility issues and the proposed Financial Transaction Tax (FTT) -- as a way to raise sorely needed corporate tax revenue for climate initiatives, social services, infrastructure, research and other vital programs. We’ll show excerpts from the outstanding documentary film by Harold Crooks The Price We Pay and other relevant clips. Respected economist Bill Barclay, who worked for 23 years in financial services, will join us to discuss crucial issues such as: military vs. other government spending; what the LaSalle Street Tax (LST) Coalition and Fair Economy Illinois propose for finances to put people and planet first; and how the FTT can work and serve the common good. 

 

 

Friday, May 12, 2017 at 7:20 pm: Broadcasting Service Vs Propaganda:

 

The Brainwashing of My Dad -- by certain talk shows and "news" offerings -- is the engaging film by Jen Senko that we will view this night. It takes us into exploration of the impacts of mass communications and social media on our lives today. We'll examine some history of broadcasting and whose purposes have been served. And we'll discuss what has brought mass and social media users to recognize and make counter accusations about false facts and fake news. Humanists have brought this film and are co-sponsoring this Just Views program to help us determine how to get accurate information and analysis and to use it wisely to the benefit of one's self and our local-to-global communities. The public and all points of view are welcome. For more about the film, go to http://www.thebrainwashingofmydad.com/.
