Hugh Taft-Morales

Leader, Philadelphia Ethical Society

If we are going to build world peace, mustn’t we start by looking within? Often we are at war with ourselves. We amplify the inner voices telling us that we are not good enough, not ethical enough. We can fall into an unproductive cycle of self-loathing. How do we readjust our attitude to escape from self-criticism on the one hand and indifference on the other? How do we take a heroic stance against injustice, while admitting that we usually fall well short?
