Recent and Upcoming Just Views Programs
Friday, August 12, 2016 at 7:20 pm: Michael Moore’s “Where To Invade Next”
Tonight, we’ll view and discuss Michael Moore’s latest blockbuster film. “Learning from Examples Abroad” would be a more accurate title for this upbeat film – which is not about war and occupation. The film highlights other countries' progressive policies and programs. Issues are addressed such as: Healthcare. Incarceration and what goes on during and after imprisonment. Education and what is expected of students in terms of money spent on tuition. Worker rights and perks – including family leave options, paid maternity/parental leave, and elective/standard vacation periods. Military spending and what portion of the GDP and taxes collected are spent on the military. In free-ranging audience discussion following the film, we’ll discuss organizing to implement some of these progressive policies here in the USA; we’ll also challenge some US mindsets about our being the world's leader, the best and the brightest, the fixer . . . The public and all points of view are welcome.
