As human beings, we choose the actions that form our character. We can choose to be good or bad or anywhere in between. But if we want to live and achieve happiness, we must choose to be good; and to do so, we must discover and uphold rational, life-serving principles.
To make the most of our lives, we must commit ourselves to being virtuous: We must uphold reason, think for ourselves, be productive, honest, just, and proud. Doing so requires a lot of thought and effort. It also pays off in spades.
Join Craig Biddle for a conversation about moral principles for success and happiness on Wednesday, June 30 at 7 pm EST.
This webinar is the second in a three-part series on liberty and character development co-hosted by the Lyceum Program at Clemson University and the Foundation for Economic Education. The series runs on June 23, June 30, and July 7 at 7 pm EST. You can register for a single webinar or sign up for all three!
