Who We Are –
We are the Civilized Conversation discussion club of San Diego! Our goal is to revive the lost art of thoughtful conversation. We are also a diverse group of people from different parts of the political spectrum and varying backgrounds. Yet, we believe that it is possible to discuss controversial topics — politics, public affairs, even religion and philosophy — honestly and respectfully as well as passionately. We talk, listen, learn, and have fun.
What we do –
We gather together for an evening of respectful, animated, intelligent conversation. We have weekly meetings on scheduled topics, opened with a brief introduction by our moderator, DavidG, or other members or invited speakers. We follow with a roundtable discussion by all present and sometimes finish with a round-table on current events.
When and Where
Currently we are a Zoom collective. In non-pandemic decades we meet every Monday evening from 7pm to 9pm at the Panera Café, 5620 Balboa Ave, at the Genesee intersection. We invite you to come enrich our discussions with your presence and viewpoints.
