Why Emotion Matters More Than Reason

Christopher Tidmore recently completed a 31 country trip circumnavigating the world. While driving through Central Asia, along the Afghan border, he realized that an appeal to simple secular reason will never work as an effective foreign policy.  He looks forward to discussing this topic with the NOSHA crowd!

Tidmore enjoys an extensive background in public relations, journalism, fundraising and in commercial insurance and surety. 

He has served in public outreach positions for several non-profits and issue-based causes, and as a senior advisor to two U.S. Senatorial campaigns. Having hosted one of Louisiana’s top political talk shows, political blogs and newspaper columns, he currently acts as Political Editor of The Louisiana Weekly, the state’s oldest and most respected African-American Newspaper.

He is also co-founder and co-owner of T&T Agency, LLC, an insurance agency dedicated to serving commercial clients, in particular the construction industry. 

Besides his political journalism, Tidmore has done extensive travel writing, having just completed a six month drive from London to Singapore, via the Silk Road through Central Asia and China, then across Indonesia, and ultimately from Darwin to Sydney across Australia. In fact, he has visited 51 countries in the last ten years.


To get to the meeting place at the zoo: Enter from Magazine Street at Zoo Avenue (between the two stone lions) and continue to the statue of Audubon. The entry way to our area (the Dominion Learning Center) is to the right of the main entrance through the metal gates. 

If it's a pretty day or there is a festival, parking will be at a premium so give yourself plenty of time to find a spot.

All NOSHA meetings are free and open to the general public.

    What a thought provoking topic! Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves a lot and hung around for good conversation which is always our goal. To bring people together for fellowship.

      I love that profile picture. Anyway, over these days since, I have begun to better see some holes in the argument. Maybe sometime we can all air some of what we think about the issues brought up.

    Interesting talk and fine presentation — although I ultimately disagreed with the premise.
