Good intentions gone wrong tonight

Americans for Prosperity

Tonight (March 11, 2013) Americans for Prosperity features selections from Good Intentions Gone Wrong by John Stossel.

The meeting is from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm, at Spangles Restaurant, 612 S. Broadway, Wichita, Kansas. Topics from the video presentation:

Mystery of Happiness: Is Happiness Relative?
What makes people happy? Are we happiest when we’re doing well, or when we’re doing better than others? On what do we base our happiness?

Income Disparity: Should Equality Be the Goal?
What is the problem with some people having more money than others? Would it be better if everyone had the same? What if we could make sure everyone earned the same amount of money as everyone else? What would happen then?

Police Accountability: Privacy Laws Gone Wrong
What’s the difference between secrecy and privacy? Should public servants have a right to privacy while at work? If people are allowed to video record public officials, will that affect the way those officials do their jobs? This segment looks at the debate over video recording of police.

Censorship at College: Politeness Gone Wrong
Is college really a bastion of free speech, a marketplace of ideas, where views can be discussed in an atmosphere of openness? Are some cultural, economic, and political views more acceptable on campus than others? Who decides?
