Civility and Community
Concern for others is the basis of human decency; without it. our communities are increasingly degraded by selfishness and corruption. Some think that crime and racial conflict naturally follow the breakdown of shared community values. In a world of violence and deviancy. how can we build a caring community? Have courtesy and civility disappeared-and if so. how can we regain them? Does a diverse population share enough concerns and values to sustain a tolerant yet unified society? The Morality in Our Age series examines the historical and philosophical background of today’s most pressing moral challenges. Though a final „answer” is notoriously elusive in moral discussion. you’ll develop a much better insight into the forces and principles at play on today’s most serious moral issues. problems. and dilemmas.

Seven Deadly Sins
‚I was 22 years old. a hard-on with a pulse: wretched vice-ridden. too much to burn and not enough minutes in a hour to do so. 1995 was a full 365-day year of drinking. fucking. lying. raging and exploration for me – not a dull one in the bunch. It was a time of self-shit: self-importance. self-absorption. self-indulgence and selfishness. I was the only person in the known galaxy and I wanted what the fuck I wanted sooner rather than later.’The action begins in West Des Moines. Iowa. where Corey Taylor. frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour. systematically set about committing each of the Seven Deadly Sins. He has picked fights with douche bags openly brandishing guns.

He got rich and famous and immersed himself in booze. women. and chaos until one day he realised. suddenly. that he didn’t need any of that at all.Candid. Literate. Brilliant.

Williams explores these heartbreaking stories and the long. usually unsuccessful journeys toward reunification. Examining the interior lives of the enslaved and freed people as they tried to come to terms with great loss. Williams grounds their grief. fear. anger. longing. frustration. and hope in the history of American slavery and the domestic slave trade. Williams follows those who were separated. chronicles their searches. and documents the rare experience of reunion. She also explores the empathy. sympathy. indifference. and hostility expressed by whites about sundered black families. Williams shows how searches for family members in the post-Civil War era continue to reverberate in African American culture in the ongoing search for family history and connection across generations.
