"Constructing  One's  Personal  Ethics  in  the  Current  Age  of  Extreme  Relativism"
How  do  you know  what  is  ethical  or  good  to  do  when  faced  with  your  many  moral  decisions  such  as  whether  to  lie,  to  help  the  needy  or  not  waste  your  time  and  talents?   A  written  dialogue  will  explore  bringing an  ethical  dimension  to  one's  daily  life.  As  our  society  has  very  little  of  this,  each  person  much  needs  a  personal  ethics  to  live  by.   The  written  dialogue  will  briefly  draw  from  the  personal  ethics  of  major  activists  and  figures  in  literature.
