Recorded Sunday, September 7, 2008 at the Buli Cafe on the Cedar Springs Strip in Dallas. Today, The Buli Salon will wrestle with the question: When Is Life Not Worth Living? Is an exact answer possible? Can there be anything like a public consensus? Does it depend on the quality of Life? Who should make that decision? Should an individual own their own death? Should the state be involved? Joining host RICK VANDERSLICE, in the Library Nook, to consider these matters are: writer/blogger/poet RJ JACKSON and social/political observer ROY CALHOUN.

Is Greed Good?

This salon was recorded on Sunday, July 27, 2008 at the Buli Cafe on the Cedar Springs Strip in Dallas. The question today on The Buli Salon is a slippery one: Is Greed Good? This question was inspired by our last salon on the middle class. The entire economic engine of American capitalism requires the fuel of ever increasing consumption from its citizens. Increasing wealth by consuming and acquiring more and more things is powered by, yes, greed. Are the results of this greed imperiling our survival and happiness on Planet Earth? Is there a better ethic and organizing principal for sustainable human civilization? Joining RICK VANDERSLICE at the square table in the Library Nook are regular salon members: writer/blogger/poet RJ JACKSON; social/political observer ROY CALHOUN; activist/writer/podcaster JOHN SELIG.
