The Human Condition, and what You can do about it.

  • May 28, 2013 · 7:00 PM

The Human Condition, and what you can do about it. http://www.meetup.com/The-Human-Condition/

I was thinking this first meeting we would explore ‘’Baggaged Words” (i.e. pejorative words) and oppositionally-paired words commonly used in discourse, (debate, discussion, argument, dialogue, etc.).

Words like ‘’Swell’’ and ‘’So’s Your Old Man’’ (oops, I digress)

Right vs. Wrong
Good vs. Evil

Happiness vs. Sadness

You vs. Me

Us vs. Them

Up vs. Down (maybe not)

North vs. South

Intellect vs. Instinct

Fraiser vs. Foreman (Ok, now that’s going too far.)

As soon as we can get these points all cleared up, I want to jump right into;
‘‘The Individual’’
I want us to define it, re-define it, wrassle with it, tug at it’s heartstrings, corral it, pick it apart, ‘’Frankenstein’’ it back together, free it, do what we will with it, until we can come to a ‘’Common Among Us’’ definition of what it means to be an Individual.

This may take a few meetings, is my guess.

    I like the idea and would like to try this discussion group out. Unfortunately, I work weekday nights. I hope some good ideas are shared.
