Discover Your Values
Research different political and social issues.When looking at an issue or a value, ask yourself, “What effect will this choice have on others?Ask yourself, “What is right or wrong, as I understand it?If everyone followed my example, what kind of world would this become?What is your stand on legalizing drugs? Abortion? Gay Marriage? Health Care? The Iraq and Afghanistan War? Can torture ever be used?
Recommendations!
Spend frequent time alone in reflective thought or journal writing about personal and social issues.Adopt an open attitude toward those whose value systems differ from yours and develop a willingness to test your own values.Use significant contacts with others who are willing to challenge your values and beliefs.
