    Joe's review was spot on.
    I'll add it was fun and opened a door to a visually facilitated meeting.
    If you have a suggestion for next months topic, let me know, I'm the facilitator.

    Intense discussion that would have benefited by a containment of scope, if the intent was to actually come up with viable alternatives. As a general free-form discussion. it was entertaining and informative, though not without its moments of "violent" passion.

    I look at "violence" as a multifacted dynamic embodying the "visible" direct-physical impact and the "invisible" languishing in economic and political abandonment. ~~~Mary C.

      Might I add...an *extreme* manifestation possibly due to one's inability (at the moment of stimulus) to express of a more moderate response?

      Thanks, Anita. Cave Creek and Beardsley. I won't need transportation for this meeting, but perhaps another time. I'll keep it in mind.

    My first time to attend! Great topic, too! Bringing my brother and my daughter. : )

    The "visible" direct-direct physical impact" refers to an assault on "humans." Yet when you referenced it as "good" I think you may be referencing the "animal" specie and the "survial of the fittest." And that is a valid implication--as well as suggesting it as a method to uncover the foundational causes of social and environmental injustice. It embodyies the multifacted-dynamic. Thanks Kevin.
