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 June 13th           Meeting #658
Trump II Would Mean Chaos and a Threat to Europe
Dr, John Beesley, English born Author, retired after a long career with Xerox, (Educated in London's Imperial College and the University of Dallas, BSc, MBA, PhD), will discuss how, bad as Trump's first term was, his second, which is quite likely, would abandon Ukraine, embolden Putin and encourage the far right. He never felt comfortable with Europe's democratically elected leaders - being more at home with autocratic leaders such as Xi Jinping and Putin. He would leave NATO and unleash a 21st century version of McCarthyism. John argues that we are now at the precipice of 1938. However, Europe currently provides twice as much military and economic aid to Ukraine as the US does. The EU would have to strengthen its ties to the global south in Asia, Africa and South America. America would no longer be part of the family. England in the Spring of 1940 was alone - but now can count on the greater part of Europe and its values. Under Trump, John contends, America will no longer really matter.
