Debate Night at Riverside Salem
December 1, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
At Riverside Salem Environmental Cottage & UCC/DC; 3449 West River Road, Grand Island, NY 14072. 4-6pm followed by a pot-luck. This week is a debate, with the topic to argue the premise “Capitalism is a Blessing.” You will hear expert proponents and expert critics of capitalism debate the merits of the proposal in three acts: opening statements, direct debate, and audience questions. Intelligence Squared debates are forums for raising the level of reasoned, civil discourse on divisive topics, and this particular topic is fiery. This time of year, with “Black Friday,” “Buy Local Day,” and “Buy Nothing Day” relevant to many, makes it a great time to take a look at capitalism and consumption.
