I’m Just so pleased that I was taught about ethics at school, even if I can only remember just some of the principals of it all.
Now what strikes me is that more people should of been taught them, as some of those principles apply to why we all need to have the vaccine.
The same kind of Ethical principals apply to the need to be Vegan.
It is all very well talking about personal choice, and the principal of Human Rights, but what about if these choices impact upon other people or life upon this planet?
I guess in many ways it is an aspect of just why we need to engage in joined-up-campaigning.
This is one of the aspects of life that I mentioned in my article A few thoughts about the One in Seven which has just been published within the latest issue of Information For Social Change [ ISC ].
One of the side effects of lockdown has been the chance to think about the kind of society it would be ideal to live in, even though most of us have had to deal with the practical issues which face us all.
It also has been many of us the chance to think What Next? & Where Do I Want To Go Next ?
The coming few months will be very busy with the end of lockdown.
The first thing is that Part two of Tranche One of the spycops public inquiry is taking place next month, and I am hoping to learn about the activities of the spycop[s] that I knew during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Though the inquiry is redacting so much information that it is very hard going to get anything which is really useful out of it.
Then comes all of the active campaigning which needs picking up on again, and the chance to meet other activists in order to work out what we can do next.
Some things which need doing are very obvious, but we will need to build up an activist base once more. As and when these activities will be posted on the Close Capenhurst Campaign website.
