What can we do about inequality in society?
What can we do about inequality in society? Can anything be done to build a society based on genuine humanity? A talk by Robert Ashby, former chair of Humanists UK A year ago Robert Ashby spoke to SELHuG about how human societies throw up elites that dominate them. The elites create justifications for their entitlement like being more deserving or more clever. It enables them to govern and strip out the gains from economic activity, and maintain control. The poorer sections of society find themselves in a totally asymmetric financial and power struggle that seems designed to hold them back. Now he returns to focus on what can be done about it, in order to create societies based on equality, creativity and genuine humanity. Please join us for Robert’s talk, followed by discussion.

What we're about

SELHuG is a group for humanists, and people interested in a non-religious world view, in south-east London.

We hold monthly meetings, often with a speaker, to discuss philosophy and ethics, current affairs and social justice issues. We organise public and social events, and support humanist campaigns and charities. SELHuG is also a hub for professional and volunteer practitioners in south-east London such as humanist celebrants, school volunteers and interfaith activists.

Monthly meetings first Thursday of every month in New Cross; monthly walk or brunch third Sunday of every month; other events throughout the year.

Lots of our members aren't on Meetup so the numbers on here aren't always very descriptive of the numbers attending a particular event!
