You are invited to participate in a new series of civil dialogues, launched by Arena Stage.
These dialogues seek to provide an opportunity for members of the Washington, DC metropolitan community to engage in discourse about major current issues. They also seek to demonstrate that people of very diverse viewpoints can have fruitful dialogues with one another. We hence assume that all participants have consented to heed the rules of civil dialogue, such as not attributing motives, not demonizing the other side, and showing that they truly listen to the other. There will be a few dialogue starters but most of the time will be dedicated to give and take among the participants. The dialogues will be moderated by Amitai Etzioni.
Monday, January 14 – Must we be Tribal?
Sunday, February 17 – How democracies are lost—and saved.
Sunday, March 24 – Should free speech be denied to hate mongers, cultural appropriators, news fakers and traumatizers?
Sunday, April 14 – Reforms or Revolution?
Sunday, May 26 – No designer babies?
