Bring your pseudonym or real name. Bring some food or drink if you have a mind to and whatever else you feel might augment the social aspect, of what I’d hope turns out to be, a serious initial step in moving political knowledge and opinion beyond these pages and into the real world in a way that is both effective and sustainable.
Meanwhile, given that I’m a bit of an obsessive on the small matter of democracy and in the interests of saving time and energy, I’m suggesting that the following very basic pre-requisites, essential for safeguarding democratic modes of organisation over the medium and long terms, get discussed here (I know, I know – it’s somewhat ironic given my intention that what follows is a numbered ‘buy in’ list, but hey….)
