     It was a very interesting discussion, touching on many issues either directly related to the book, and other things that would come up as a result of the discussion about the book. People were thoughtful in their reflections, and tolerant of the views of others, even if they disagreed. I was especially interested in the brief discussion of words, and the use of words, having studied this issue in the past. [Orwell's Principles of Newspeak in his 1984; and Orwell's Politics and the English Language were both very helpful]. The meeting format was informal, and comfortable. I'm glad I went, as was Beth, who went with me.
