Attn, NYC Reasonoids: Debate on "Culture of Corruption" in Business & Politics, June 21


An event worth attending:

Is There a 'Culture of Corruption' in Politics and Business?, a public debate featuring Robert Pollock, Matthew Continetti, David Callahan and Daniel Ben-Ami, and moderated by NY Salon's James Matthews.

From Abramoff to DeLay, many claim Washington is riddled with corrupt practices. At the same time, confidence in Corporate America has yet to fully recover from the blows of Enron and other scandals. This apparent explosion of corruption has led some to wonder if our political and business institutions face a deep-rooted problem of illegal and unethical behavior.

On June 21st, 2006, the NY Salon and the New York Society for Ethical Culture will present "Is There a 'Culture of Corruption' in Politics and Business?" a discussion with four leading writers on the extent and implications of corruption in our institutions….

The panel discussion begins at 7pm, followed by a question and answer session with the audience. The event will take place at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, 2 West 64th Street at Central Park West. Admission is FREE. For more information, please call (212) 874 5210.

The event is also cosponsored by the Donald and Paula Smith Family Foundation.

  1. “…you know- a DEAL! Maybe the guy’s a Republican.”

  2. Is There a ‘Culture of Corruption’ in Politics and Business?

    Of course! Since roughly 1 in 3 people are basically evil, how could there not be?
    Corruption exists in all human endeavors.

    Test for evil:

    Would you murder an innocent person for one million dollars if you knew that you would never be caught? If your answer is yes, you are evil (by my definition at least).

  3. I’ve just read The Gilded Age by Mark Twain (Project Gutenberg). Now there was corruption!
