Video - Profe­ssor Joanne B. Freeman on Thomas Paine's Common Sense

Arie Ross, who was scheduled to speak to us on this occasion, had to cancel due to pressing engagements around the coming federal elections.

So instead, we will be showing a video from Yale's Open Courses series. Professor Joanne B. Freeman will be discussing Thomas Paine's famous pamphlet Common Sense and its significance for today's misinterpretations of the intentions of the founding fathers when developing the US Constitution.   

We will also be showing a trailer for the forthcoming star-studded Hollywood movie Spotlight, which tells the story of how the tip of the vast conspiracy to shield Catholic pedophile priests from justice was exposed in Boston by a courageous team of investigative journalists. 

All are welcome to attend. Join us at 10 am for BYO coffee, tea, and socializing. At 10:30 am we start our presentation and discuss topics of interest to our members.

The BC Humanist Association was formed in 1984 and we have a regular attendance of over 30 people at our Sunday meetings.
