Anarchy isn’t just street protests and railing against the establishment. It’s a serious political philosophy that believes people will flourish in a leaderless society without a centralised government. It may sound like a crazy ideal, but it’s almost worked before. ✊💥

Victims of crime can be invited to participate in restorative justice programs where they face the person who has wronged them. One in five Australian females over 15 have been sexually assaulted or threatened – usually by someone they know. In these cases, a victim may face an ethical dilemma they haven’t chosen. To either grant or withhold forgiveness. Often, it’s an uncomfortable place to be 🙎‍♀️😩
•
Should we forgive those who have wronged us? What makes someone worthy of forgiveness? Can forgiveness be wrong? 🤝
•
After all, forgiveness is difficult. Doubly so at the moment we’ve been wronged. But by meditating on the ethics of forgiveness and understanding when someone can be forgiven, we can ease the difficulty of an arguably more important event – when we wrong someone else 😟 Tap the link in our bio for the full story 💥

Tonight criminologist Michael Salter (@salter1178) @ethics_centre & our wonderful friends @archierosesyd present ‘The Ethics of Hedonism’. Hedonism says pleasure is the key to a happy life. Do you agree?

Today we're taking a closer look @noam_chomsky, one of the foremost scholars of our time. He's written 100+ books, received 30+ honorary degrees, and spurred on a generation of aspiring leftists to be deeply sceptical of the media, the state, and its foreign policy.

Ethics touches virtually every decision we make in life, big and small. Every choice has the capacity to shape our own life, and the world, for the better.

As the sun sets on another Festival of Dangerous Ideas we’d like to thank our amazing speakers, artists, guests, vollies, and most importantly, our incredible Festival director, Danielle Harvey, and our presenting partner, @unsw, for an eye-opening, discussion-prompting, illuminating, and thought-provoking weekend. Let’s do it all again next year! #FODI
It’s been a weekend of dangerous thinking, mind bending talks and embracing different perspectives at #FODI. 
With just the last session to go for 2018 here's a bit of a recap of some of the moments shared. 📷 Jodie Bakers & Yaya Stempler 🙏
OUR ETHICS CENTRE VISION // A world where we know ourselves and others: where we have the courage to stand up for our values and principles, the wisdom to explore the complex and unknown, and the imagination and heart to strive for the very best we can be.
🍃
The grassy Conversation Field is your space between breaks at #FODI to hash out the dangerous new ideas you pick up along the way, throughout the day. Shoes optional 👣

“The person who is most uncomfortable with a difficult truth is the person who has never to look at one”. Just one of the truth bombs dropped by our resident Ethicist and Philosopher, @drmattbeard at his thought experiment on the Danger or Skepticism. 🔥
“Scepticism is dangerous, but is most dangerous to those invested in the status quo...those who claim to know something but don’t have the receipts to prove it” #FODI •
