Most people think the world is in a mess! Controversial current world events become issues that dominate the news. Headlines in the media are designed to attract our attention and irritate us.  Some even raise our blood pressure!  Some of these issues can be dismissed and ignored, but others impinge on our lives and make us anxious.  Not only do they affect each one of us, but they also affect our families and friends.  Consequently we worry about the future. We cannot remain bystanders, but how do we cope?  What should we do? Through videos and discussion this course will examine a number of controversial public issues selected by the participants. The goal is to probe the underlying causes and work out reasonable responses.
