Have Ethics Gone Awry?
UCSB RS 190GA
Impeachment. Corporate Corruption. Me Too. Black Lives Matter. Immigration Revolt. Wealth Inequality. Ethical, social and economic injustices that have arisen during the Great Recession Era (2000-present) may seem unique to our challenging time. In reality, many analogies can be drawn to the Gilded/Progressive Age’s (aprox. 1865-1920) significant ethical calamities, social problems, and economic injustice that prompted Mark Twain to coin the phrase “an era of serious social problems masked by a thin gold gilding.” Join us as we seek lessons learned to help make a difference today.
