Four years ago, my partner and I hosted a dinner party the Saturday night before the election. He (democrat) and I (libertarian-ish) invited friends and family from the political spectrum; my parents and step-brother, republicans, and our friends who were a mix of a green, two swings, and a communist. It was a 7 course meal and with each serving we’d introduce a new topic. I’d give a brief introduction that was written as non-partisan as possible and then we’d go through the group with everyone giving a quick opinion about the subject first and then open it up for discussion. The food was great (my parents even brought a donkey and elephant decorated cake), all of the people were very respectful to everyone elses’ opinions. It was such a fun time that we’ve decided to make it a tradition.
The planning is starting for this term’s meal. What should the topics be?
I’ve come up with a couple ideas so far:
War on Terror.
(Mods, this thread isn’t intended to debate the topics, only to suggest which topics should be important. But please move this thread if need be :D)
