I have been invited by Copenhagen Conscious Talks to have a discussion on 15th March, with a topic ‘The Vigilant Citizen in Chaotic World’. In this presentation, which will be recorded and published online, we will approach prevalent problems we our society is facing these days and I will aim to present relevant solutions, based on my experience and knowledge.
If we take a look at our society, what we will notice there is a growing tendency towards hypocrisy, double standards and arrogance. Is that a modern phenomenon, or an underlying trend that has been dominating for centuries and only now we begin to see it more clearly, through the various abuses the state, the media and the power elites expose us to.
Are the phenomena such as NSA’s global surveillance programs, political and religious fanaticism (expressed recently in events such as ‘Charlie Hebdo’ and Copenhagen shootings), double standards for freedom of expression, or civil wars in Lybia, Syria and Ukraine examples of such misinformation and abuse?
Is our world on the verge of plummeting into a state of complete chaos and global war? And is there something that us, the 99,99% of the world’s population, can do to stop this trend of chaotic suffocation of our society’s moral and human values?

These are some of the questions I will be addressing in this talk, because the solution is not a passive acceptance of immorality and chaos, but rather a vigilant attitude – one that can be trained, just as any other human characteristic.
If you yourself have been troubled by the events and tendencies we get to witness these days, you are welcome to join me on 15th March, 19:00 in Concordia Venue, Ananda Hall, Nordre Fasanvej 230, Copenhagen N 2200. You may also put your own questions for this event, by posting them below in the Comments section, or through Twitter using hashtag #conscioustalksdk
