Two Talks (October 2018)

I’ll be in Baltimore and Washington, DC this week, giving a pair of talks with Eric Laursen.  We’ll discuss George Orwell and Alex Comfort, war and peace, anarchism and pacifism, honesty and integrity, ethics and politics, and whatever else occurs to us.  Details are below.
