Let's get together with fellow Boomers and discuss the media and political correctness (two separate but linked issues). What do we mean when we use the term 'media'? After all, isn't one person's trusted news source another person's corporate sponsored bias machine? What are your sources of information? (We might learn in the discussion of new and different sources.) Is the current state of information in the US helpful or harmful to our democracy?
And what exactly is political correctness? Is it simply an idea with which you disagree? What can we do as individuals to encourage our children, family, and friends to listen to different sources and to different opinions? Opportunities:
Listen to the opinions of others; learn why they think the way they do.
Express your own opinions.
Learn some facts about where you can get information.
Polite listening and talking will prevail.
This is not a debate and so zingers and shouting are not allowed.
Attendance is limited to twelve to encourage participation.
Future current events topics might include ISIS, immigration, job creation, etc.
