Statement on Free Speech
Our constitution and laws encourage the freest possible exchange of opinions, ideas, and information.  In part, that recognizes our worth and dignity as human beings.  To forbid us to speak our minds demeans us and makes us more like slaves or robots than citizens of a free country.  But as important as freedom of expression is for us as individuals, it is perhaps more important to society at large.

Thursday October 13th               Meeting #592
Global Issues Collaboration or Confrontation?
Jian Li, PhD in anthropology and a Mandarin teacher, will explore five global issues facing us today: The Impact of Climate Change; The danger of military conflict, especially nuclear war; The extreme gap between the rich and the poor; The polarization of political views expressed by news/social media that pulls people apart; The conflict between an increasingly connected world and the rise of nationalism. She argues that the problems we are facing are increasingly global, whereas the reactions to the global problems tend to be more provincial. ...... How can we engage in productive conversations where people are willing to listen to different views, and take responsibility to become problem solvers rather than problem amplifiers?
