Come enjoy the fun side of Philosophy (Yes! There is one!). Taste our delicious In House Brewed Beer, enjoy summer appetizers and be part of good ole fashion conversation - aimed at finding the common ground we all share in this Republic of ours. Jack will guide and moderate the discussion trying to find answers to : Is Socialism destroying America? Has Conservatism become an extreme? Who is a Communist? Who is a tyrant? What have all these words come to mean in 2021?
In recent decades these and other terms used in Political Philosophy have become distorted, politicized and weaponized – but they don’t have to be. In this next Socrates Pub, Drs. Brian Harding and Jack O’Connor will lead a group discussion on what these words traditionally mean, where they came from and what implications they may have on America. Brian will take a Liberal perspective, Jack a Conservative one, and together they will lead an informal debate – inviting group participation – to rationally and respectfully dialogue about these emotional issues. As fellow citizens in a free Republic, it is our duty to know, respect and understand those perspectives we disagree with - as well as the ones we hold.
So, come out and share a meal, a pint, and your understanding of where America should be headed with your neighbors!
