What Price Happiness? Dessert and Discussion  

The discussion will be based on a three page story by Ursula Le Guin, The Ones Who Walked Away From Omelas. A PDF will be sent to everyone to read before the discussion. The story tells of a utopian town where everyone is happy. As the tale unfolds we learn that there is a (small?) price to pay for this happiness. The ones who walk away cannot live with that price. Le Guin asks us how can we balance questions of freedom and security, as well as to go even further to question our understanding of ourselves as individuals and as a community.
