From the New Symposium Society: Capitalism and Socialism

The New Symposium Society held a public forum on the topic “Capitalism and Socialism” on the campus of Friends University on August 20, 2019. Audio from the event is below.

One participant remarked that the forum provided a format that led to a “remarkable exercise in polite public discussion that is unusual in these hyper-politically charged times.”

Another participant commented, “I thoroughly enjoyed the conversation with truly diversified, intelligent, polite participants.”

A special thank you is in order to New Symposium trustee Bob Love for his masterful job of acting as the informal “catalyst” in facilitating the meeting discussion. He artfully interjected nuanced intelligently designed dialogue from time-to-time to gently stimulate audience commentary and stay ahead of the discussion on both the capitalism and socialism sides of the discussion forum.

It was a “wow” meeting and we thank everyone who attended and participated in this successful forum!

We also thank Friends University for granting us the opportunity to host these informative meetings on their university campus!

P.S. I would be remiss by not mentioning and thanking our trustee mentor Mike Witherspoon for his work in organizing the New Symposium Society forum presentations over the last five years or so all designed to create the opportunity for “civil discourse in the pursuit of truth.”
