Okay, this should be interesting. The idea here is to discuss the relative pros and cons of all three and what each really looks like versus how they are or have been, implemented. Can we define each based on the classical definitions and/or the modern definitions? How does a "constitutional republic" fit it with this? And what exactly is a "democratic socialist"? Curious but important questions and well worth discussing. Inquiring minds really do want to know.
This, by the way, was a topic that arose out the last month's discussion, which was fascinating if not a bit terrifying.
If you are interested, a group of us like to go out to lunch afterward. We will wrap up the meeting around noon so you just might be hungry by then.
Hosted by Richard Dewey the first Saturday of each month.
