  1. Does our sense of ethics come from within — as the voice of conscience — or is it a social convention and contract?
  2. What might be the impact of our government withdrawing its social welfare reach and making room for individual choices?
  3.  Could private schools funded by scholarships do a better job than the public school system?
  4. After Newtown, what impeded the American people from uniting around a shared vision of gun violence prevention, which would stand at the intersection of freedom and the sanctity of life, the individual and the public good?
  5. Do public gestures of empathy matter? Does the sense of cohesion last or is it momentary?
