Panel Discussion

The System is Broken

Bill Potts moderated a free-wheeling discussion of the state of affairs in the present-day United States and the world. The panelists brought with them a variety of well-thought-out perspectives, dealing with economic, political, social, electoral and other aspects. The panel identified some of the many ways in which the system is, in fact, broken. Solutions were implicit in much of the discussion, even though their appearance, in the short term, seems very unlikely.

The seriousness of the topic didn't detract from its enjoyability, as evidenced by the enthusiastic applause at the end.

The panelists were Leon Lefson, Wayne Luney, Margo Gunnarsen, Ted Webb, and Joy Fisher.
