Netflix Lost Subscribers, But It Really Lost Something Larger — Call It Mythology
https://variety.com/2022/film/columns/n ... 235255088/

1. Have you subscribed Netflix? Do you enjoy watching films on Netflix?
2. Do you prefer to watch movies in a cinema or Netflix?
3. Why did the loss of Netflix subscribers happen?
4. Netflix offer subscribers to share password. Would you be willing to subscribe it if this policy changed?
5. Do you see any chance for Netflix to solve this problem?

Session Two
1. Do you think organ donation by default a good policy? Is organ donation a controversial issue in our culture?
2. If one of your family members passed away unexpectedly,
 2a.Would you override an organ donation if he/she was a registered organ donator? Why?
 2b.Would you donate a family member’s organ after his/her death, if the person was not registered for organ donation?
3. Would you donate your organ to those who has chosen not to do the same? On the other hand, if you personally don’t want to donate your organs, would you still accept an organ donation if you needed it?
4. The views about organ donation vary in different religions.
According to the article, some Buddhists, including those who are followers of Tibetan Buddhism, believe the consciousness may stay in the body for some time after the breath has stopped. Until the consciousness leaves the body it is important the body remains undisturbed, so Tibetan Buddhists may have some concerns that an operation so soon after death may damage their consciousness and cause harm to their future lives. Does this affect your decision about organ donation?
