PLATFORM ADDRESS: THE OTHER UNBORN: ETHICAL BEHAVIOR TOWARDS FUTURE GENERATIONS

Northern Virginia Ethical Society member Sven Sinclair notes that many decisions we make, both in our private lives and in public policy, affect persons who do not yet exist, but will be born in the future. They cannot express their wishes, give or withhold consent, or negotiate with us, so many common ethical principles do not apply in our dealings with future generations. Sven asks how do we, and how should we, consider the welfare of those who will live after us?

    I am sorry to be missing this talk. I have been super busy for the past month and a half. This Sunday I am an exhibitor at the Loudoun Earth Day Festival, otherwise I would be at this meeting.

    It is so important to consider those in Ethical Culture who come after us.
