Civility, which comes to us from the Latin word for citizen, includes not only the notions of courtesy and politeness, but also such matters as social relationships and proper conduct in human relationships. For some, civility is the essential glue that holds society together, and it involves such important issues as friendship, altruism, responsibility, dignity, and justice. Aristotle saw civility as a form of friendship, which he understood as a mutual feeling of good will. Aristotle believed that humans are capable of promoting another person's interest without regard for our own, and he ranked friendships according to their degree of intimacy and commitment. "Character friendship" may be purely selfless; "advantage friendship" is a mixture of self-interest with perhaps some altruism, and this is the basis of civil interaction. By contrast, Thomas Hobbes believed that humans are incapable of sympathy with the interests of others; he said that we are ultimately motivated by self-interest in all of our acts. But recent experiments and theoretical developments have supported the view of David Hume, who believed that humans are naturally sympathetic, with our benevolence (or willingness to act selflessly) guided by such things as reason and custom. 1.

Filled with humor and inspirational essays, this meticulously researched book strikes at the heart of intolerance. Only through meaningful and heartfelt discussions with conservative Christians can hearts and minds change, and this book by Darren Main will help you start the conversation. It is an indispensable tool for supporters of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, as well as Christians striving to be more compassionate and understanding. By confronting one of this generation's most volatile social issues with civility and respect, Hearts & Minds: Talking to Christians about Homosexuality shifts the emphasis away from political arguments and toward changing religious attitudes - creating space for profound healing and reconciliation between two communities who often find themselves at odds. 1.

Michael Signer was the idealistic citizen-mayor of Charlottesville, hoping to use values such as civility and prudent governance to help guide his community through local issues such as what to do about controversial Confederate statues. Instead, he found himself in the eye of a "perfect firestorm," as his community came under siege in a coordinated campaign by the alt-Right. Cry Havoc is a compelling narrative of events on-the-ground in Charlottesville 2017, set in a larger context of what it means for a country struggling to find its way through the sturm und drang of the Trump era. Signer provides invaluable insight into how a democratic society under fire can respond to challenges such as: Reconciling free speech and the right of assembly with the need for public safety, in a time of rising extremism.The intensification of extremes on the right and the left, consuming values of pragmatism and compromise and even facts themselves.The widespread disaffection with institutions and a democracy that seems to be faltering and turning on itself.The failure to deliver positive measures to address a legacy of systemic racism through our political language, our built environments, and our public policies.An Internet and social media unleashing our darkest demons and organized hatred that we are ill-equipped to disrupt. Signer's "you are there" account will have readers asking "Well, what would I have done?" if confronted face-to-face with forces intent on intimidation and the destruction of democratic norms and institutions. This book provides insight and inspiration for how we can individually and collectively rise to the challenge.

For Gordon Van Zandt, life was one of duty and loyalty to his country, so when 9/11 happened he dropped out of college and joined the Marine Corps. This youthful idealism soon vanished, one fateful day in a war torn city in Iraq. Ten years later, he is still struggling with the ghosts of his past, but must now face a new reality thrust upon him and his family. North America, Europe, and the Far East have all suffered a devastating Super-EMP attack that has caused catastrophic damage to the power grids and all electrical devices. With nothing working, from cars to phones, and the total collapse of the economic infrastructure, Gordon must fight for limited and fast dwindling resources. He knows survival requires action and cooperation with his neighbors, but as daily life continues to break down so does all sense of civility within his community. With each passing day, Gordon makes choices that would seem extreme in today's world, but necessary in this new world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joseph Morton.

In 1931, in the segregated South, marriage between whites and blacks is illegal. Maggie, now a criminal, faces jail. When Lance receives death threats to atone for his father’s betrayal, the family flees the US for a new life in Paris.Still grieving Hank’s death and fearful of their uncertain future as Europe marches toward war, Lance and Maggie mourn the lives they loved but lost. As they struggle to create new identities for themselves, they find friendship and support from a surprising community of artists and American expats on the same journey. In a new city, with new friends, new loves, and exciting possibilities, they start to believe that it might be possible to change everything, even the past. Spanning continents and decades and set in Paris between the wars and New York in the Golden Age, Provenance is a sweeping historical saga about love, betrayal, tragedy, triumph, passion, privilege, and the universal desire for acceptance.“A memorable tale of love, loss, and redemption.” (Kirkus Review) 1.
