Dr. George Goens presents Civility Lost: the Media, Politics & Education

November 2 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Civility Lost: the Media, Politics & Education is the title of the new book by educator, leadership expert and author George Goens. Goens states: The U.S. is undergoing serious splintering that threatens, not only relationships, but also politics and society. Divisions are emphasized. Disagreements turn into name-calling and castigating. Issues are sharply painted in right or wrong, ethical and unethical, intelligent or unenlightened colors. Civility Lost explores principles and expectations for a democratic society, and how differences can be approached civilly to explore and define solutions. Citizens must engage in respectful conversations to build greater understanding. Differences are inevitable in a democratic republic by its very nature. Civility is essential for citizens to engage in self-government.
