What we're about

Thanks to the growing community, we can debate big ideas with people all over the world... Simultaneously!!

https://ideas-exchange.info/

Join our global community of minds and share with people in different countries and from all backgrounds thorough our weekly online debates. Imagine debating with people in 10 different countries at the same time... How awesome is that?

This is a safe, inclusive and respectful space designed to talk to other humans, learn from one another and implement our ideas, in all relevant aspects of life.

We will discuss both “big” and “small” ideas, talking about the past, present, and future, the ideal world and our everyday reality.

Each Meetup will have a main focus subject, with a wide margin to explore other interesting topics.

Our main rule:

“I do not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

Some subjects we’ll explore:

Human wellbeing and psychology Relationships and family Society, economics and politics Lifestyles, cultures and languages Technology and futurism Philosophy, religions and ideologies The “why” and “what for” of life

And many more, that we’ll decide on together…

Welcome to the global community of Ideas Exchange!

Guns are a technology that have changed a lot since they were first used to revolutionize war as we knew it. Society has changed dramatically alongside them. In most rich countries the majority of citizens don’t own a gun, while in the US, the world’s largest economy, its inhabitants own nearly half of the world’s guns. Many now ask if firearms have any place in the twenty-first century.

Many communities have been shaken countless times by the violence inflicted with guns, while in other communities firearms fill a vital role in their identity. Some places allow open/concealed carry of weapons while others insist that citizens only exercise this right to defend their home or visit a range. Are firearms vital to our safety or are we shooting ourselves in the foot?

Considering personal rights, collective rights, and types of regulation, we will talk about how we should solve the riddle of the firearm.

We’ll get together in front of our screens and with coffee or other beverage in hand talk to other human beings that are as passionate as ourselves about finding answers.

Some subjects we’ll touch on:

• Gun regulations – what are they like where you live?
• When is it appropriate to use a firearm?
• What are the different kinds of firearms?
• Firearms and self-defense
• The causes of gun violence
• Is gun ownership an inalienable right?
• Other uses for firearms

Upon finishing the get-together, we will have shared our experiences and perspectives on what we should do or shouldn’t do about guns.

Depressed, Anxious and Lonely: The Inevitable Modern Life?

Online event

$4.00

Welcome to this fascinating global debate… held simultaneously!

Join participants from cities the world over… don’t miss out!

We grow prosperous materially and yet we feel less financially secure than before. We have incredible communication technology and yet we feel alone. The world is brimming with interesting things to do and experience, and yet sometimes we can’t even get out of bed. Why is our modern life so full of these unfortunate paradoxes?

Some say we need to return to “traditional values” to feel whole again, others counter that we haven’t progressed enough to reap the benefits of modernity. We will explore what makes us happy and sad and why there seems to be such a disconnect between the life we were promised and the life we get to experience.

We’ll get together in front of our screens and with coffee or other beverage in hand talk to other human beings that are as passionate as ourselves about finding answers.

Some subjects we’ll touch on:

• Depression, loneliness, anxiety – symptoms of the same problem?
• Does money make you happy or sad?
• Family and friends – is the antidote out of reach?
• Spirituality – medicine or false hope?
• The modern world – not built for wellbeing?
• How to find meaning in a meaningless world
• And so much more!

Upon finishing the get-together, we will have shared our experiences and perspectives on the loneliness and lack of meaning that accompany modern life and on how to resist these feelings.
