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 1st Meeting #618
An Overview of the Progressive Era
Charles Paidock, social historian, will discuss a period of intense social and political reform aimed at creating a better society. He contends that “very little attention is paid to the transition of our country that began around 1900, and which continues to be pursued by those in the activist community today”. Charles argues that "once social change begins it cannot be reversed, and there is not likely to be a retreat to the past which some dark forces in our country advocate." He will concludes by showing, with examples, how the issues back then are in many respects the same as those currently confronting us.
