Suggestions for discussion so far are:

Who?[edit | edit source]

Anyone is welcome to attend as many or as few sessions as they like, regardless of

  • prior experience in social sciences or political activism
  • current employment within the government
  • subservience to any other political or social ideology

However, forming a logical argument, keeping an open mind, and maintaining intellectual honesty and ethics are strongly encouraged.

Where?[edit | edit source]

If you have to ask this question, you haven't been paying attention.

Why?[edit | edit source]

It has been brought to Reverend Mik's attention (and that of several members and regular users) that the term "anarchy" is being used improperly. Rather than ascribe negative motivations for this misuse of the term, Reverend Mik chose to assume that it was a question of a lack of education or information and volunteered to teach this class.
