A Night of Better Conversation: The Good Society – Myke Bartlett

In this night of free and open conversation, we’ll be considering what makes for a healthy society.


Talking politics has always been a no-no in polite society. In today’s highly-charged world, to do so is to risk setting the dinner table (or your Facebook feed) aflame with partisan argument. Are we still capable of having conversations about the state of the world that don’t end up with people shouting at each other from fiercely-guarded viewpoints? Surely it wouldn’t hurt to try.

In this night of free and open conversation, we’ll be considering what makes for a healthy society. Is there such a thing as good nationalism? Should governments be inspirational or pessimistic? Should economics be driven by ethics, rather than profit? What would the perfect government look like? How can we make our society great… again?

Join The School of Life at Mercedes me Store Melbourne for a fun, social and meaningful night of better conversation on the topic of The Good Society.
