About this blog

  • Thinking Ethics was a project launched in Geneva to foster the debate about ethics. A few friends, fed up with only reading about abuses in the media, decided to hold a forward-looking seminar on five subjects: ethics and performance, ethics and knowledge, ethics and consciousness, ethics and disobedience and ethics in real time. If moral has to do with right and wrong, then ethics is its application in society. We believe that people need to talk about the subject to determine the level of ethics they want. The book Thinking Ethics, a result of the seminar, is to start the discussion. This blog is a contribution to the conversation.

Can Americans handle the truth? Americans have had very little access to the truth. Wealthy powerful corporation who are in bed with the government control much of the main stream media, there for controlling Americans perception of what the truth is. Now, however, with the WikiLeaks disclosures, they are able to have a clearer view of what their reality actually is, but only if journalists do there job by analyzing and following-up on this information, and connecting the dots. We need to stop making excuses about how knowing the truth is dangerous. Truth does not cause death and destruction, nor does it put peoples lives in danger, but lies and deceptions eventually do. If Americans don't have a clear understanding of what their leaders are doing on their behalf, then they don't truly live in a democracy. We need to encourage more leakers. The more truth that is revealed, the better. The more ignorant the masses are, the more dangerous the world is. The truth will save us, but only if we embrace it completely.


Hello: I just wanted to say that I hope everything works out well for this young man. He is a Hero and should not have to pay with his life for having brought crimes by the government to light.
