    Conspiracy theories are as old as politics. But conspiracists today have introduced something new --- conspiracy without theory. And the new conspiracism has moved from the fringes to the heart of government with the election of Donald Trump. This talk will explain how the new conspiracism differs from classic conspiracy theory, why so few officials speak truth to conspiracy, and what needs to be done to resist it.

    BREXIT Update Date: Saturday, December 14, 2019 Time: 2:00 pm-3:30 pm Location: Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room Fee: $18 in advance; $22 at the door

    In June 2016, the United Kingdom narrowly voted in a referendum to leave the European Union. More than three years on, BREXIT, as the process is commonly known, remains unresolved. It has created political turmoil, already costing two successive prime ministers their jobs; led to a shift in traditional political allegiances; risks fracturing the UK into pieces as pressure for Scottish independence builds again; and depending on the outcome, could significantly undermine the British economy. What is the European Union? Why did the British voted to leave it? What is the current state of the BREXIT negotiations? And where does the process go from here? This talk will unravel the mystery of BREXIT in real time, only two days after the British general election.
