In this special “quarantine edition” of Lucid Cafe (subtitled: “…so don’t be an asshole”), I have a particularly thought-provoking conversation with my husband John Halley. We discuss the ethics of honesty, the state of the world, the power of kindness, and the assumptions we can’t afford to make about consciousness. In this candid conversation, John opens up about how allowing himself to feel sad has been the key to living a happy life.
Is it ever okay to lie? Is the human species more valuable than other species? Do you need hope to live a good life? Do you need religion to be a moral person? These are some of the questions my husband John and I tackle while sitting on our couch having a cocktail.
