The Ethics of Voting

Nothing is more integral to democracy than voting. Most people believe that every citizen has
the civic duty or moral obligation to vote, that any sincere vote is morally acceptable, and that
buying, selling, or trading votes is inherently wrong. Jason Brennan argues that voting is not a
duty for most citizens — in fact, he argues, many people owe it to the rest of us not to vote.
Bad choices at the polls can result in unjust laws, needless wars, and calamitous economic
policies. Brennan shows why voters have duties to make informed decisions in the voting
booth, to base their decisions on sound evidence for what will create the best possible policies,
and to promote the common good rather than their own self-interest. They should vote well —
or not vote at all. He argues that voting is not necessarily the best way for citizens to exercise
their civic duty, and why some citizens need to stay away from the polls to protect the
democratic process from their uninformed, irrational, or immoral votes. In a democracy, every
citizen has the right to vote. Come hear Jason Brennan reveal why it's sometimes best if they
don't.

Touchstone Gallery presents a Maryland Writers' Association poetry reading on Friday, July 22, 2011.

As Gregg Wilhelm, Executive Director of the CityLit Project, describes it, “Life in Me Like Grass on Fire is the confluence into which the many streams of love flow. Ride the current of these words through rapids and still waters to places new yet familiar.”

For more than twenty years, the Maryland Writers’ Association has nurtured and supported the Maryland literary arts community. In honor of that tradition, select MWA members deliver a heartfelt introduction to the region’s writing community in MWA Books’ second anthology, Life in Me Like Grass on Fire, reflections on love.

Export Controls: What's Ahead from the Obama Administration and Congress

Monday, July 25

12:00-2:00 p.m.

Export controls in the United States are at a crossroads, with potentially significant consequences for both national security and the global defense industry. The Obama administration has been developing export control reform proposals for nearly two years, which it plans to unveil at the Department of Commerce's 2011 Update Conference on Export Controls and Policy taking place on July 19-21. The administration is also finalizing its statutory proposals, and there are competing Republican and Democratic bills already introduced in Congress. To examine the future of U.S. export controls, Hudson Institute invites you to attend a panel discussion featuring current and former decision-makers:

More than 90% of all Americans use wireless phones; some of us have more than one wireless device. On television, on radio, in newspapers, and on the Internet, we are greeted with advertisements for wireless communications services. Many consumers upgrade their services every year or two to take advantage of better phones, new services, and lower prices. Competition in the wireless industry is also examined by the Federal Communications Commission. Each year, the FCC prepares a report on competition in the wireless industry. To RSVP please click here. Complimentary lunch will be served. Betsy and Walter Stern Conference Center Hudson Institute 1015 15th Street NW 6th Floor Washington, DC 20005 Hudson Institute’s Center for Economics of the Internet is pleased to present a seminar on competition in the wireless industry. Professor Gerald Faulhaber of the University of Pennsylvania and Professor Robert Hahn of Oxford University will discuss their paper, entitled Assessing Competition in U.S. Wireless Markets: Review of the FCC’s Competition Reports . They will discuss the actual state of competition, how it is measured, and the consequences of measuring it badly. Senior Fellow and Director of the Center, Harold Furchtgott-Roth, will introduce and moderate the discussion. " id="pdf-obj-14-49" src="pdf-obj-14-49.jpg">

The New Digital Profile: Managing Privacy in an Evolving, Mobile Internet

The role that privacy plays in broadband adoption and social media has emerged as a key policy issue. With more new adopters, particularly people of color, seniors and low-income populations going online, the management of their digital profiles becomes a priority. How will current and emerging public policies protect the interests of these more vulnerable consumers? And, how can we ensure that privacy concerns will not present a barrier to broadband adoption among these groups? Please join a panel of policy, industry and government experts to address these questions, and share pending legislation.

Lunch will be served. Tuesday, July 26, 11:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Reserve Officers Association Building First and

Moderated by:
Matthew Duss, Policy Analyst, Center for American Progress
In recent months, anti-Muslim forces have raised the specter of
Sharia usurping the Constitution and destroying the American
way of life. Bills have been introduced in more than two dozen
states that would “ban” the practice of Sharia law—despite the
fact that Sharia is not a collection of laws but a set of diversely
interpreted guidelines for religious practice. In addition, no
Muslim American leaders are calling for Sharia to override
American laws. Banning religious freedom for Muslims is
unconstitutional and would have serious consequences for
international treaties and for religious expression in other faiths.
Join us for an enlightening discussion with a panel of experts who
will explain the basics of Sharia, compare its precepts with those
of Christianity and Judaism, dissect how it is being used as a
wedge issue in political campaigns, and examine the the real
impact on Muslim American communities.

Cross-Sector Approaches in Education: Enhancing Youth Development and Reducing Gender Inequity in Guatemala and Jamaica

Please join us at a reception immediately following the panel presentation.

RSVP:

The SID-Washington Gender in Development Workgroup and Juarez & Associates (J&A) will be hosting a panel presentation with top-level representatives from two basic education projects being implemented by J&A: USAID/Guatemala Education Reform in the Classroom (REAULA) and the USAID/Jamaica Basic Education Project (JBEP).

REAULA focuses on achieving a more democratic and prosperous Guatemala, building on successes from the 2004-2009 period of USAID support to Guatemalan education, and on Government of Guatemala's priorities. REAULA provides technical assistance to improve access to the quality, equity and efficiency of

basic education, by increasing teacher effectiveness, improving classroom-learning environments, fostering effective first and second language acquisition and reading, extending access to girls and indigenous groups, and expanding parent and stakeholder participation in student learning. The overall goal is to ensure educational reform in the classroom and the application of effective approaches to expand and improve basic education opportunities in Guatemala, thus contributing to workforce readiness of the nation's youth as well as reduction in youth violence.

JBEP is helping to make Jamaica a more secure, democratic, prosperous and stable US partner by supporting the USAID Jamaica Country Assistance Strategy, and the Government of Jamaica's (GOJ) Educational Transformation Program. In line with USAID's and the GOJ's shared policy of sustainable transformation, JBEP incorporates achievements from the previous USAID Expanding Educational Horizons in assisting the Ministry of Education to roll out tested educational practices. JBEP targets 250 Primary, All-Age and Junior High schools island-wide. JBEP also receives complementary funding from the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative to support activities in 54 of the project schools located in crime prone and volatile communities. This presentation describes one aspect of the work of JBEP in its effort to improve teaching and learning in primary schools situated in these violence prone communities, with a focus on boys.

This year marks the 90th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party. For over 60 years, the party of Mao Zedong has ruled the People’s Republic of China, and while the government has changed some of its policies, in many ways, it continues to keep its citizens under close watch. Chinese leadership celebrated the anniversary with fanfare, parades, and performances, fostering a nationalist nostalgia for a time that was in fact, anything but joyful. As the Chinese Communist Party conceals the truth of its brutal past, the Laogai Museum seeks to expose it.

The Laogai Museum will host a screening of The Blue Kite (in Chinese with English subtitles), a film by Chinese director Tian Zhuangzhuang released in 1993. The movie, which follows a family through three tumultuous Communist Party political campaigns, is banned in China. Director Tian was subsequently exiled from the film industry for ten years. Despite the image the Chinese government strives to portray to the outside world today, a look at the human cost of the Hundred Flowers Campaign, the Great Leap Forward, and the Cultural Revolution show a much different side of the Party.
