A special thanks should go to those that got missed off the invitation list to the recent breakfast that our How- ick Local Board hosted. I work for an organisation that got missed, but I know there are many good people out there that do not belong to an organisation and just get out and do many things to help other people, cleaning up beaches and waterways, visiting sick or old people. A very big thank you. Barry Wood, Cockle Bay Unacceptable violence THE question I have for Paul Bennett is: From where does his moral inher- itance arise; upon what is it based? (Times, July 7) Christianity bases its moral foun- dations on the Bible, the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. Islam bases its moral founda- tions on the Quran (Koran) and on Mohammed’s life and teaching. Western societies like ours have largely adopted Biblical values of jus- tice equality and freedoms. They form the bases of our law and behaviour. Eastern societies have adopted other codes and legal systems. So whichever way you view the world, religion plays a pivotal role in determining morals. If as you seem to suggest in ‘all inclusive moral perspective’ our cul- ture determines the foundations of our morals, then greed, deception and violence would surely be prac- ticed and eventually normalised. Hence my concern is about the overly secular education in New Zea- land whittling away at the moral base of our society. Certainly we can agree that the unprovoked violence is growing and unacceptable. Ian George, Howick Defining morality MORALITY is an absolute, or defined by human experience. There seems to be a lack of under- standing as to what Ian George meant by using the inference that bad things happen through a lack of a moral education and understanding (Times, June 30). The morality term used by Mr George was an absolute (not chang- ing over time), built on the historic Ten Commandments. Whereas Paul Bennett sees moral- ity in a secular light that is not absolute, that changes its definition over time within society (Times, July 7). A good example of that is when we compare what was acceptable at the beginning of our TV service in this country and now. What was not morally accept- able then in the beginning is by and large acceptable now because it is not absolute. And there are many more examples like this, illustrating a rise of increas- ing bad human behaviour. Using the example of two young children as an example of the non workability of teaching absolute morality was a long bow indeed. It lacked credibility without an inquiry into what the children’s knowledge was of fundamental human laws. Ian R. McIntyre, Howick Council matter IN RESPONSE to Lesley Thomson’s letter (Times, July 7). In correction of statements made by Ms Thomson, I would like to point out that she does not, in fact, hire an Uxbridge space. I believe the room that she hires is in Keall House, which is controlled by the Auckland Council. We would suggest that any judg- ments, criticisms etc relating to her hire experience should be taken up with that organisation. Tony Morgan, Uxbridge, Howick’s creative centre manager Howick College’s open A netball team, left in red, and First XV rugby players took on members of the Counties Manukau East Police in their annual fixtures earlier this winter season. The students won the netball match 22-18, while the police won the footy 17-16 with a try in the final play of the game. The rugby referee is Howick Police sergeant Paul Devane. Photos supplied THE past few months have looked so bright for businesses it’s amazing that chief executives weren’t wearing sunglasses in the office, but the economists predict a change in New Zealand’s financial forecast. As the general election looms on September 20, interest rates look set to increase and businesses report increased costs, and less confidence in growth. Before directors, financial controllers and general managers hibernate into wintery gloom, next week’s free Business Aspirations seminar promises to put a ray of sunshine into their day. Astill Hawke & Associates is bringing award-winning Mike Rich from Attaché to town with practical solutions to address the issues facing businesses. From 7.45-10am on Thursday, July 24, directors, general managers, chief executives and financial controllers are welcome to see Mr Rich in action at Astill Hawke Business Centre, 35 Allens Road, East Tamaki. The event is free but registration is required. To register by next Monday, July 21, phone Astill Hawke & Associates on 985-9791, or send us an email to office@ astillhawke.co.nz. Business class Letters to the Editor Featured letter each week will receive a Times pen.
