Parity_Talk_May-31-2009__Morals_Dont_Pay_No_Bills_24kbps but they form the foundation of civilization. Commercial interests have usurped our otherwise essential priorities. Out of selfishness, the majority of people have chosen money before morals. Sadder still is the fact that they tend to think this is the practical, correct and only choice to make. Moral neglect spells catastrophe sooner or later so at the very least we're calling for change. Above anything else we are not telling anyone what to think but rather want stimulate intellectual conversations.
Topics covered on this week’s show:
Today is White Sunday, The Pentecostes day (50 days) and also the jewish festival of Shavuot.

He knew about it: Marshall MC Cluhen with his enlightening analysis of foresight of today’s media maybe there is some wisdom to having a role based society rather than today’s class based society?
A reflection: can a disgruntled generation become so mad that they may be influenced to start another war? Surely we need to create a society with real value for all of its citizens.
Are the Dutch finally getting it? As a proposal for closing down all prisons in Holland is on the cards.
