WRITINGS AND TEACHINGS

KENNETH WESTHUES
Professor Emeritus
University of Waterloo, Canada

Updated with quotes for June 2020:

Classic:
The bystander effect is watching some evil take place, but since we are watching with others who are watching, and no one seems to be doing anything about the evil, we go on watching and doing nothing about it.
— Carol Bly, Changing the Bully Who Rules the World, 1996.

 

Direct:
The human person shares with the jackass a kind of power which no group or society, no other people, can take away: donkey power, the ever-present opportunity to say no.
First Sociology, 1982, p. 146.

Garden moment for June 2020:

A late-blooming azalea behind Oakes Garden Theatre, Niagara Falls, Canada. If, in this time of COVID-19, flowers bloom in a garden and no one is there to look at them, are they less beautiful?
