Morris Silver will address the current crisis facing the United States by upholding examples of great leadership. His thesis is that virtuous leaders inspire virtue in the nation, and vice versa — that a virtuous citizenry demands moral clarity from its political leaders.
Among those he will portray are William Wilberforce, the British social reformer who fought for an end to slavery in British colonies; George Washington, who set the United States on the path of true democracy by refusing to take on the powers of an emperor or king, and Mahatma Gandhi, who championed the cause of peaceful revolution and led India's fight for independence from Britain.
Dr. Silver is a longtime member of the Ethical Culture Society with a lifelong interest in history and politics around the world. “I am a retired dentist as my profession but an ethical culturist as a full time job. I am married to Ruth and I have three adult children from a previous marriage. I travel a lot, I am a reader and love life.”
