The syllabus for this discussion shall be "a rolling format" that changes as need changes. Recommendations are that a background in Paul de Man, Ludwig von Bertalanffy and Gregory Bateson could be helpful. As the discussion continues, other sources may be more appropriate.
So, for a lively discussion, the rules are designed to change often!!!
(See Animal Farm!!!)For a discussion of how that kind of format evolves, see Paul de Man and/or Jacques Derrida regarding deconstruction.

President Bush presented a global vision upon his second inaguguration. Is that a State function or is it indivdual? How is it you know? "So it is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world." AND "By our efforts, we have lit a fire as well - a fire in the minds of men. It warms those who feel its power, it burns those who fight its progress, and one day this untamed fire of freedom will reach the darkest corners of our world." Bush
