If we abandon tradition, how will we know our past?
If we cling to tradition, how will we embrace the future?
The tension between tradition and progressivism comes into focus when this week's ethics panel convenes to Grapple with the Gray.
Join us on LinkedIn Live this Wednesday at 5:00 pm ET when we take up this ethical dilemma:
Once again, the running of the bulls at Pamplona resulted in multiple injuries although, gratefully no deaths… this time. The recent coronation of King Charles raised renewed debate over the relevance of the monarchy, which seemingly perpetuates non-Democratic values but also brings in an extraordinary amount of tourist revenue. As we approach November, here in the US we look forward to the pardoning of the presidential turkey, a ritual I personally find inane.
On a larger scale, the war between traditional values and progressive sensitivities wages on the battleground of legislation, language, family, and identity.
Is it ethical to put lives in danger, whether others or our own, for a frivolous pursuit? Is there any benefit to preserving rituals that now seem at best irrelevant and at worst contrary to contemporary values? How do we calculate the benefit of preserving them against the cost of discarding them, and vice versa?
