Syndey, Australia -- Dialogues on Temperance

Warrane College, a university residence in Sydney, was the site of a seminar on the virtue of temperance organized in May. The speakers were Andrew Mullins (Headmaster of Redfield College and author of the book Parenting for Character), Judy Stove (director of the Restraint Project at the University of New South Wales), and the Australian historian and philosopher, James Franklin. They spoke about temperance, one of the so-called cardinal virtues, from various perspectives, including its personal and social effects. The speakers agreed that it is especially young people who are bringing this virtue back into fashion.
