Most people believe that every citizen has</p><p>the civic duty or moral obligation to vote, that any sincere vote is morally acceptable, and that</p><p>buying, selling, or trading votes is inherently wrong. Jason Brennan argues that voting is not a</p><p>duty for most citizens in fact, he argues, many people owe it to the rest of us not to vote.</p><p>Bad choices at the polls can result in unjust laws, needless wars, and calamitous economic</p><p>policies. Brennan shows why voters have duties to make informed decisions in the voting</p><p>booth, to base their decisions on sound evidence for what will create the best possible policies,</p><p>and to promote the common good rather than their own self-interest. They should vote well or not vote at all. He argues that voting is not necessarily the best way for citizens to exercise</p><p>their civic duty, and why some citizens need to stay away from the polls to protect the</p><p>democratic process from their uninformed, irrational, or immoral votes. In a democracy, every</p><p>citizen has the right to vote. Come hear Jason Brennan reveal why it's sometimes best if they</p><p>don't.</p><p>Thursday, July 21, 2011</p><p>4:00 p.m.</p><p>(Reception to follow)</p>;id=aa24cb8919&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=aa24cb8919&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=aa24cb8919&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=cd3256f4e8&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=cd3256f4e8&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=0bafaa1fa7&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=0bafaa1fa7&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=0bafaa1fa7&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=0bafaa1fa7&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=cd3256f4e8&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=aa24cb8919&amp;e=bc2b99230e</li><li><p>8/6/2019 bMichael Events This Week 20 July 2011</p><p> 11/26</p><p>F.
