We: Reviving Social Hope
The book We: Reviving Social Hope by philosopher Ron Aronson will be the focus of a discussion group Friday February 7. The author will be the Unitarian Universalist Sunday speaker on February 2. His book is a message to save us from the despair, cynicism and defeatism that paralyzes too many in these troubled times.
Aronson argues that social hope is born from collective action, a we, not just I. It is in a movement that “we become members of a larger entity, drawing power from it, having responsibility to it, and experiencing ourselves within it.” Through collective action “the formerly powerless can generate something new, social hope, by acting together.” And this can change not only the world in which we live, we also change ourselves.
