    Sorry, fellows, I won't be joining the group tonight; I am soaking in Woodstock.

    Have fun!

    How about the topic that our cousins down in the District of Confusion discussed this past weekend: "Are We Making Progress?"

    Or, a variation of a theme from Thomas Jefferson: "What is 'Progress of the Human Mind' and what evidence is there that it is or isn't occurring?"

    "Does determinism entail predestination" sounds like a good topic that just came to my mind.

      A topic that just came to mind for me: "Obsession"...­ I have no idea what triggered that thought! The human mind is very curious indeed.

    Privacy vs security is my suggestion as a topic. I feel this has many social, philosophical/ethical, financial , etc. considerations and ramifications, but most of all, WE ARE ALL AFFECTED AS AMERICANS. It would be interesting to see what the group thinks since we are from different generations, walks of life, cultures...

    Take any suggestions? I have one: should the govy have the right to spy on its citizens? Seems to be the topic du jour!

      Only to spy on (audit) "public servants" to ensure they are acting ethically...the recordings should be posted on the internet. :D

      Or privacy rights in general. I mean, what exactly constitutes an "unreasonable"­ search or an "arbitrary" interference with privacy. Technically, haven't the American people generally been supportive of the concept of the "War on Terror" and implicitly indicated (by their voting) that they have an expectation that the authorities will "do whatever it takes" to prevent terrorist attacks rather than simply clean up the mess and pursue the culprits after the fact? If the American people want to "rescind" the "War on Terror" and explicitly disavow their "do whatever it takes[ to protect out children!]" attitude, great, I'm all for a rollback, but I'll believe it when I see it. For now, get used to it. Another way to put it: What would it take to persuade the American people to abandon their beloved "War on Terror"?

    govt, sorry...

    And the topic for next Thursday, 6/13 is...

    To be determined by the attendees at the beginning of the session. We'll have a brief discussion of possible topics and then select one, either by consensus, or letting the moderator decide (me), or a formal vote if there is too much dissent.

    That's the process we used last time and it worked out well. This is roughly how they do it in Paris. We'll tune the approach as we go.

    We ended up talking about Universals.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
