Discussion: Free Speech


Come join us for an engaging topic-centered discussion. Java Vivace will serve you your choice of poison (coffee, tea, beer, wine etc.) and delicious food (unique crepes), while your fellow CFIers will serve up the conversation.


The topic for February is:

Free Speech

What constitutes speech?  How absolute is that right, and who does it apply to?  What should be the limits to speech, if any, and where do they apply?  (If free speech is an absolute right, does that make the moderator's job harder?)

 


All are welcome. Cost for Non-CFI members: $2. Free for members.

If you would like to suggest future topics or make any other suggestions, please send them to the organizers.

Note: If you RSVP with yes and decide not to attend, please update your RSVP, other people might be waiting.

 

Discussion Guidelines:

  • Please be respectful.
  • One conversation at a time.
  • Disagreement is to be expected in an interesting conversation.  But if you disagree with a point, please offer a counter argument, or example.  Simply saying "you're wrong" doesn't help further debate.
  • Please allow others to speak, don't dominate the conversation.
  • While it's the moderator's job to steer the conversation, keep it on topic, and give everyone a chance to have their say, it's also a cooperative effort.

 

Thanks and happy discussing,
-Glenn

    The discussion would have benefited from consideration of particular case studies and a greater number of participants.
