In-person Round Table on Ukraine on Wednesday, April 6

Please join us for an in-person round table on the Russian invasion of Ukraine at 9:00 am on Wednesday, April 6 at Landmark Center in St. Paul.

T.S. Eliot said that April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.  And here we are, in April.

But we are not in Ukraine, where the spring thaw has bogged down Russian tanks.

Have we entered a new age?  A darker one, with more intolerance and less freedom?  An age of elites imposing their ways on the “deplorables”?

In our aspirations, have we overlooked the insight of Thomas Hobbes and Herbert Spencer that power, not love, is the foundation of life?

Registration and a light breakfast will begin at 8:30 am.

The cost to attend is $10.00 per person.
