UU's discuss the common good

ALAMOSA — Robert Samuelson wrote, “We face a choice between a society where people accept modest sacrifices for a common good or a more contentious society where groups selfishly protect their own benefits.” While conservatives accept the common good as important, they believe that it can best be served by individuals operating freely in the marketplace. Government’s role should be limited to protecting private rights. Liberals believe that justice requires that government play an activist role to protect and extend the common good to those at the margins. Economic justice is not an oxymoron. It is the means of securing the common good. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Alamosa will explore this complex topic. Join Don Thompson and Jan Oen as they look at the role of justice and the common good this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. The UUs meet in the fellowship hall of Alamosa Presbyterian Church, 330 San Juan Avenue.
