Where would you go to talk to people who are interested in talking to people – beyond anecdotal extremes?

star-trek-beyond-c1Where would you go to talk to people who are interested in talking to people?

I don’t mean work or hobbies or organized institutions such as churches or clubs or networking or dating I mean.. well.. people of a feather who’d like to talk together?

Something beyond anecdotal extremes?

Unity.. exploring.. disputing.. in a respectful way.. “whither humanity?”

This is a concern among the generations way more than the would-be would like to present – it’s thought, feeling, spirit, more. than any age, gender, race, whatever ism you care to specify – imho ; p

jabberwockyJabberwocky: `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.










1958_Gene_Barry_Bat_MastersonBat Masterson: Back when the west was very young,
There lived a man named Masterson.
He wore a cane and derby hat,
They called him Bat, Bat Masterson.

naiveté, politics, cynicism

Clinton-Trump-SandersNaiveté: innocence or unsophistication; lack of experience, wisdom, or judgment; native, natural
Politics: affairs of the cities; of, for, or relating to citizens; owing existence to successful warfare
Cynicism: inclination to believe that people are motivated purely by self-interest; skepticism
Well, well…  this tries to say it all.
PS: which is which?

Ongoing Episodes Bias – Dallas and Foreigner

Years ago I *started* to watch a 1978 TV series called "Dallas" (or a 1981 TV series called "Falcon Crest"? hmm) but I abandoned it (or it) when I realized it (or it) would just go on and on and on without end.

Years ago I started to read and *continue* to read 1994 Speculative Fiction series called "Foreigner Universe" that *amazingly* continues to this day.

Why? Because "Foreigner" begins each episode/novel/arc with a situation and ends each novel with a happy resolution.

Dallas ran 13 years/394 episodes. Foreigner is running 22 years/17 novels and counting.

I am sure they are both good however I admit I am biased for Foreigner *sigh* please choose your own preference!
