Sept. 12 - Movie Night: Idiocracy



Humanists Doing Good will be having a closed viewing of the movie Idiocracy. This viewing is not open to the general public and is intended only for participants of Humanists Doing Good. We will carry out an intellectual discussion of the film afterward.

Idiocracy is a 2006 American satirical science fiction comedy film directed by Mike Judge and starring Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolph, Dax Shepard, and Terry Crews. The film tells the story of two ordinary people from the present who take part in a top-secret military hibernation experiment, only to awaken 500 years in the future in a dystopian society full of extremely stupid people. Advertising, commercialism, and cultural anti-intellectualism have run rampant and dysgenic pressure has resulted in a uniformly unthinking society devoid of intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, and coherent notions of justice and human rights. This movie is rated R for language and sex-related humor.

When: Sept. 12th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sept. 7th, 2013 - Camping/Hiking The Colorado National Monument

Join Humanists Doing Good as we camp and hike on the Colorado National Monument. We'll be camping at the campground and doing a couple shorter hikes in the area. Our board vice chair is also an employee at the monument and will be leading us on a couple of the shorter hikes in the area. Camping is always a great way to further get to know people and to enjoy some great shared adventures.

To participate in this event we are asking that members pay $8 and nonmembers pay $10 to help cover the costs relating to entrance fees and campground fees. We will be recommending carpooling in to reduce overall entrance fees.
