Discussion at Brookings Café

Discussion at Brookings Café: Religion

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

There’s an old saying that says it is not a good idea to discuss either religion or politics in polite company. Religion is a personal subject and it can be the center of major conflict. Here we managed to maintain polite company, but the discussion goes deep into what it means to have a belief system. What does it mean to believe in something? Is it important? We won’t make any judgments as to what is the right religion, but here’s what a few people have to say on the subject.

This week’s discussion is about racism and other prejudices. Our participants come from diverse backgrounds and points of view, hopefully representative of Brookings. They each have stories of their own to tell and we should have conversations about things like the NFL players who take a knee, the criminal justice system and we are asking the question: where does prejudice come from in the first place?

Discussion at Brookings Café: Artificial Intelligence

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) … what does that mean to the average person? Many people say that privacy is gone, that we a heading to a scoring system, similar to China’s system which rates its citizens in terms of behavior, both financially and socially. Is AI going to make us prisoners to a rigid, super governed lifestyle, or will we enjoy the leisure and safety that some futurists say we can look forward to? This “special edition” of Discussion at Brookings Café was recorded at the Chetco Community Public Library before a live audience.

Discussion at Brookings Café: What is Real News?

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

We have all heard about “fake news.” So then, what is real news? Where do you go to find out what is really happening? When the earthquake hits, where are you going to turn to get the information you need? Today, homegrown news sources are everywhere with theories of why the world is so crazy. The scary part is that “the news” seems to be tailoring itself to what you want to hear. You could easily find yourself living in a bubble of the news you want to hear. Meanwhile, the rest of the world goes on without you. So … the question is what is real news?

On January 14, 2018 a women’s discussion started on the Discussion at Brookings Café. The gist of the discussion was that women are tired of men being bullies. They want to be treated as equals and respected as fellow human beings. Now men have come to the table to speak to this issue. How badly will they put their feet into their mouths. Or will they surprise you with what they think?

Discussion at Brookings Café: Net Neutrality

Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

Net neutrality. You’ve heard the term, but what does that mean to you? Does it mean you will have to pay more to get what you want on the internet? Does it mean you may not even be able to get what you want on the internet? Is it a question of free speech? What is Title 2, and is the battle really about money and who is going to gain from doing away with net neutrality?

Discussion at Brookings Café: School Shootings

Yet another school shooting. It happens so regularly now that it is more than scary, it’s horrifying. What can we do? We feel that we are powerless to do anything at all. But that’s not an answer. Do we ban assault-style rifles? Do we put armed guards in schools? Do we need an Education Security Administration? Or is the problem much deeper than that? This discussion includes two high school students.
