How do you define morality?

I think Sam Harris defines morality in a way I find attractive, basically that which supports one's well being. Something like murder is immoral, in this framework, because it does not support one's well being. Something like promiscuity, on the other hand, isn't necessarily immoral because not everyone has a problem with having many sexual partners (particularly if one takes precautions to avoid health issues related to any risky behavior). I also think morality exists on a spectrum, versus black/white.

What do you believe is the most challenging idea facing future generations today?

As of today, I think the most challenging idea facing future generations is that of a global society. A consequence of technology is that the world is becoming smaller.

How do you win the future?

That depends on how one defines "win." I'll answer by framing "winning" as "thriving" so how would we thrive in the future. In this framework, thriving would necessitate treating the entire globe as an ecosystem, one that includes humanity. We can't win the future if there is none.

Introduction

I *love* discussing both religion and politics to the point that it's a central part of my marriage. I have a background in religion, my husband has a background in political science.
