One woman said she voted for third-party candidate Gary Johnson; others mentioned they voted for major party candidates.One of them, however, based their decision on whether to vote around her faith.Karen Dennis, a member of the women’s Bible study at the church, said she did not vote in this election.“I can’t personally feel good about voting for either candidate,” Dennis said. “I know that God is in control of it no matter how it ends up, so I’m letting God take the reigns and not making the decision myself.”The 31-year-old said this was the first time she did not participate in a general election since she registered at the age of 18.“Not voting was a hard decision to come to,” Dennis said.One of Dennis’ major reasons for choosing not to vote was that she could not decide “the lesser of the two evils.”Dennis said whoever is elected will have major issues to face when taking office.“I’m not sure where the country is going, but we are all seeing a lot of what is wrong with the country that we weren’t necessarily seeing before,” Dennis said.Dennis said she doesn’t know where the future of the United States is headed, but she will rely on her faith to understand it.“I have hope that God will lead whichever candidate to be very active and make our country great again,” Dennis said.

Nobel Prize winner lectures on justice, social change

first_imgHarvard professor and 1998 Nobel Prize winner in Economics Amartya Sen delivered the 18th annual Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh Lecture in Ethics and Public Policy Tuesday night. Sen is also this year’s recipient of the Notre Dame Award for International Human Development and Solidarity. His lecture stressed the importance of positive social change in the world. University President Father John Jenkins welcomed Sen and praised his work in justice and development. “[Sen’s work] touches the heart of what we are about at Notre Dame,” Jenkins said. Sen opened his lecture with a quote from Nietzsche about humanity’s tendency to focus on the negative aspects of life. Rather than contradicting Nietzsche, however, Sen said the world is full of hardships. “The world in which we live, I fear, is, in fact, ugly and bad,” said Sen. However, Sen’s said his seemingly pessimistic view is in the context of the many injustices in the world. He said by failing to address and acknowledge the many instances of poverty, injustice, and violence, humans also lose the opportunity for positive social change. “The common tendency to ignore how nasty the world is helps many injustices to remain unexamined and remedied,” Sen said. Sen said people should not focus on instituting justice, but rather removing sources of injustice. What needs to be eliminated from the world can be agreed upon, Sen said, but disagreement about what will make the world “perfect” will exist. In such circumstances, eliminating the injustice should take priority over attempting to achieve an ideal society, he said. Sen also stressed the importance of freedom in establishing justice. “Freedom is not only among the most valued ideas in the world, it is among the most feared human conditions,” Sen said. Sen said many oppressed people adopt a cheerful mentality to cope with their situation. Meanwhile, the oppressors are those who fear the consequences of liberation. “Those who are afraid of freedom tend to be afraid of the freedom of others,” said Sen. Sen finished his lecture by restating the Nietzsche quote. However, he did not end with on a note of defeat, but a call to engage and rectify injustices. “We can rise to the challenge with reasoning and a better understanding of the problems we need to address,” Sen said.
