The Salon: A Forum for Conversation

The Bainbridge Public Library hosts a monthly discussion group. It meets on the 4th Friday of the month from 10:30 - 12:00 noon. The Salon is for men and women who enjoy stimulating conversation and wish to learn from others in civil dialog. Topics will vary, but the mode will be general interest subjects that impact the public. The Salon conversations will be energizing, fun, and thought provoking.

"How is the U.S. Democracy Working in 2018” 

"Political scientists generally agree that democracy is a political system where the people choose their leaders and hold those leaders accountable for their policies and their conduct in office. In a democracy, the people are sovereign – they are the highest form of political authority. Citizens of a democracy, in return for these rights, have the key responsibility to participate peacefully and respectfully in the democratic process.”  

Given these generally accepted principles, how is democracy working within the USA in 2018? What aspect of democracy seems most significant for you? How can we manage our roles, responsibilities and emotions, locally and nationally?  Click on the link below for an article that may stimulate you thinking on June’s Salon topic. http://www.scottlondon.com/articles/kf3.html
