Fluid social change can only materialize if two circumstances are met. One, the human value system, which consists of our understandings and beliefs, must be updated and changed through education and thoughtful introspection. Two, the environment surrounding that value system must change to support the new world view. The interaction between a person’s value system and their environment is what influences human behavior.

For example, in our culture, “ethics” is really is a matter of degree, for our social system promotes and rewards competition and self-interest. This perspective doesn’t just “lead” to aberrant behavior… it creates it directly. Corruption is the norm in our society and most people do not see this, for since the society supports this behavior, it is considered right and normal… or as a matter of degree.

After and between the screenings and performance, we invite you to discuss related content, enjoy a beer or wine, some snacks and music.  If you are interested in getting involved in some related projects here at Skizum check out the project links for the Universal Humane Needs Assessment project and the Potential Renaissance project.  In case you are interested in something a bit more political, have fun getting into the edgy My America Too project.
