Barry Schwartz on our loss of wisdom

“wise person knows: when and how to make the exception to every rule
wise person is made not born

Barry Schwartz makes a passionate call for “practical wisdom” as an antidote to a society gone mad with bureaucracy. He argues powerfully that rules often fail us, incentives often backfire, and practical, everyday wisdom will help rebuild our world.

Barry Schwartz studies the link between economics and psychology, offering startling insights into modern life. Lately, working with Ken Sharpe, he’s studying wisdom.”

Uganda’s brutal new law

Uganda’s brutal new law expected be on the floor of Uganda parliament for debate in late February or early March. 2010

“Uganda’s parliament is about to debate its notorious ‘anti-gay’ law … a law that would make homosexuality a capital crime in some instances. The law also makes it illegal for Ugandans not to inform on people they believe are gay.

World leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and U.S. President Barack Obama have spoken out against the bill. And before we continue, I just need to warn our listeners that there is some explicit sexual language in our next report.” to hear the interview click => The Current / CBC

“Uganda’s parliament is preparing to pass a brutal new law that would punish gay people with prison — even death.


Initial international criticism drove the President to call for a review. But after a well-funded and vicious lobbying effort by extremists, the bill looks set to be passed — threatening widespread persecution and bloodshed.

Opposition to the bill is rising, including from the Anglican church. Ugandan gay rights advocate Frank Mugisha writes, “This law will put us in serious danger. Please, sign the petition and tell others to stand with us – if there’s a huge global response, our government will see that Uganda will be internationally isolated by the proposed law, and strike it down.

With the decision expected in days, only an irresistible wave of worldwide pressure will be enough to save Frank’s life and many others. Let’s build a huge petition to stop the gay death law

click here to take action, sign the petition, then post on your Page (facebook twitter…)


The petition will be delivered to President Museveni and the parliament at the end of this week by top Ugandan civil society and Church leaders. Pro-death penalty advocates have also planned a march this week, so our voices need to be louder than theirs!

The bill proposes life imprisonment for anyone convicted of having same-sex relations and imposes the death penalty for “serial offenders”. NGOs working to prevent the spread of HIV could be imprisoned for up to 7 years for “promoting homosexuality”. Even members of the public face up to three years in jail if they fail to report homosexual activity to the police within 24 hours!


The bill’s advocates claim that it defends national culture, but its strongest critics come from within Uganda. The Reverend Canon Gideon Byamugisha is one of many who’s written to us – he says,”
It is violating our cultures, traditions and religious values that teach against intolerance, injustice, hatred and violence. We need laws to protect people — not ones that will humiliate, ridicule, persecute and kill them en masse.


By rejecting this dangerous bill and supporting the breadth of opposition to it, we can help set a crucial precedent. Let’s build massive support for Uganda’s human rights defenders, and save lives by stopping this bill — sign now here, then tell friends and family: http://www.avaaz.org/en/uganda_rights_2/?vl

With hope and determination,
Alice, Ricken, Ben, Paul, Benjamin, Pascal, Raluca, Graziela and the whole Avaaz team
