Thinking Ahead – End the Scourge of War

February 2, 2008 by cgsstlouischapter

Sunday, Feb. 3 at 2:30 p.m.
Ethical Society of St. Louis
9001 Clayton Road
St. Louis MO 63117

This meeting of the Citizens or Global Solutions of Greater St. Louis is free and open to the public. See and hear a talk by Tad Daley, Ph.D., Writing Fellow, International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, given originally October 27, 2007 at the CGS 2007 National Convention, Minneapolis, MN and made available to us by DVD. Tad strongly and forthrightly encourages the organization to go back to its roots, “Our singular ultimate long term goal is enduring world peace through enforceable world law, an end to the scourge of war forever, and something we could truly call a United Earth. . . . Our highest loyalty is our universal loyalty. . . . Allegiance to our nation must be transcended by allegiance to all humanity, to one world.” He thinks we can do this in the next 50 years.

The meeting will be held in the Hanke Room on the lower level. Park in the parking lot behind (north of) the building. As you approach the building from the lot, use the door on the right (west). As soon as you enter, the Hanke Room is on the right.

There will be ample time for discussion after the speech. If you have any questions, call Ron Glossop at 314/869-2303.
