    Hi Mary, you are the only member of the leadership team who has signed up for this event so I designated you as host. Hopefully you don't mind?

    I read the article. An answer to the last question "In what kind of world can globalists and nationalists live together in peace?" is that it is a world in which humans finally realize everything is connected on our planet. We share the same atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, biosphere, global climate, and DNA. The only escape from this connection is death and some would argue about that conclusion. We are all made of the same star dust, the tears we cry today were part of the hydrosphere drunk by dinosaurs, we all look up at the same Moon, and are all orbiting around the same Sun. We all live on the same world, it is the exact same kind of world: Earth. We are just behaving like short-lived easily-forgotten squirrels squabbling over acorns.

    How can the US recover after the negative, partisan presidential election of 2016? Social psychologist Jonathan Haidt studies the morals that form the basis of our political choices. In conversation with TED Curator Chris Anderson, he describes the patterns of thinking and historical causes that have led to such sharp divisions in America — and provides a vision for how the country might move forward.

    I am returning with a video that helps explain the Globalism [Liberal bias] vs. Nationalism [States Rights/local control bias] that is in play at this point in our social disruption brought about by the campaigns for president and the Left/Right polarization. Please view this video and reply with your endorsement or a video of your own that sheds more light on this subject. If you have read something that is more illuminating? Please share that. I don't think there is anything better out there on the subject that is causing more fear and decisiveness in our society. Even in our discussion groups. Let’s get a handle on it.

    I received an article suggestion written by Arlie Russell Rosthchild (UCBerkeley) from a professor friend in Prague today. It deals in the socialogical thought of the trump supporter, and really makes good reading. It offers fairly scholarly reading however, so if you start at "pulling the covers off" on page 687 through to the end, you will get the gist of the article. It is very important reading...

    I love this topic, but I will not be able to make the meetup. I just saw a video that was very informative about these two differing perspectives. I'll try to find it and post it here.

    I guess we still don't have a topic yet but Pat Harris sent me this one idea in a private message: "http://www.the-american-interest.com/2016/07/10/when-and-why-nationalism-beats-globalism I think this is a timely subject. It is interesting because it gives insight into what we are fighting against in our nature. May be a good topic sometime." - so to which I replied and asked him if we can do it on 12/3. I won't be able to attend this event but nonetheless I figure this subject of "When and Why Nationalism Beats Globalism" would make for a good discussion for all of you guys who can attend.

      Ok I see that Pat just wrote back and said we can do an event based on his idea any time we want. I guess he wouldn't be able to attend but he'll likely follow the comments here.
