Designed to Un-Polarize
Club is an English civil war neologism. It was a term with strong overtones... which are entirely lost today since we use the term casually for all kinds of societies and associations of like minded individuals for a purpose…'club-men' were those who deliberately suppressed political differences, in order to combine and protect their interests against all comers... 'Clubbing together' in self-defense. Lisa Jardine, "On a Grander Scale: The Outstanding Life of Sir Christopher Wren," 2002 HarperCollins, New York, p 112
We are working to bring back this type of club, updated for the 21st Century by way of Ben Franklin, Malcolm Knowles and Sugatra Mitra. Will you join us?
