>>You are asked to forward this message to people and listserves who you
>>think might want to visit a website being launched today June 18, 1996:
>>CONVERSATIONS AROUND THE MASSEY LECTURES: 1996
>>Each year, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation invites an individual to
>>give a series of 5 lectures over their radio network: these can be heard
>>all over the country and also in parts of the Northern United States.
>>Using the "RealAudio" feature of the website, the talks can be heard
>>anywhere in the world.
>>These talks have typically been somewhat intellectual and, recently, rather
>>pessimistic about the future. The presentations this year will be more
>>pragmatic and will be at a level accessible to high-school students and all
>>who care about a better future.
>>The argument will recognize the massive dangers we confront but will
>>propose ideas, actions and directions which can provide a higher quality of
>>life. People, groups and institutions are invited to form small
>>conversational groups to discuss what can be done: geographical,
>>professional and institutional communities are invited to organize a large
>>number of these conversations.
>>Robert Theobald, this year's Massey lecturer, has been working on
>>fundamental change issues for four decades. He believes that people are
>>ready to challenge current views which claim that economics, technology and
>>deficit-reduction should control political decision-making. When asked to
>>give the lectures, he decided to put as much effort into creating dialogue
>>as in actually preparing the argument.
>>The result has been an extraordinary outpouring of energy. This is
>>documented on the web-site as are the core ideas. You are invited to join
>>in a growing effort which will assist Canadians, and others, to find more
>>creative and positive directions.
>>Blessings and Peace
