Conversations for Change: Capitalism, Socialism or some of each?
December 14, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
This free event will be happening simultaneously on Zoom AND In-Person at the downtown library’s meeting room. Your choice!
Conservatives love capitalism and liberals love socialism, at least you might think so by reading popular news and social media posts today. But, what are the *real* definitions, and what do people mean when they use the words in casual conversation? In this conversation we will examine various definitions used at different points in time and place. And, we will delve into how the words are used in popular media today, and whether there are aspects of each that might be useful in our modern economy and the country’s future.
Conversations for Change is designed to foster greater understanding among individuals who may have different viewpoints. Participants in these small group conversations, guided by a trained host, practice being open and curious about all perspectives, with a focus on learning from one another.
All in-person attendees must wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth and fits snugly against the face without gaps. If you are experiencing any COVID symptoms please stay home and recover quickly.
