‘Is the truth necessary to a successful society?’ It’s A Question Of Balance 8-9 PM Saturday 7th February
This Saturday 7th February 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider ‘Is the truth necessary to a successful society?’ What place does the truth have in our society today? There’s politicians who it seems a lot of people doubt are telling the truth a lot of the time, there’s excessive advertising everywhere stretching the truth to its limits and at times breaking the limits, and there’s the tabloid magazines which never seem to let the truth get in the way of a salacious story. Evidence from religious texts dating from antiquity shows that lying and deception have been of concern to humans for millennia but is the truth still important? Do we link truth with honour in our dealings? What would a world be like where no one expected the truth? Is the truth necessary to a successful society?
What do you think? I get the views of people in the local area for our Out and About feature. Join us on Saturday 8-9 PM! For more info on the show and to hear past shows visit www.itsaquestionofbalance.com
