Presentation: "The Possibility and Limits of Political Clairvoyance"
$3 to cover copying costs (free for Friends of The Commonspace and Arch City Chronicle subscribers), all ages, noon - 1 p.m., reservation required, firstname.lastname@example.org
We will start with a quick consideration of why events that seem obvious in hindsight were obscured from foresight. We will introduce a theory on accurate ways of imagining the future as well as several techniques to think through possible futures. It's all guesswork, but it should be fun. Dave Drebes, publisher of the Arch City Chronicle, a biweekly broadsheet covering St. Louis people and politics, will lead the discussion.
