... is the guest speaker scheduled for the 133nd meeting of the Karl Hess Club, to convene on July 18, 2005.


    Dr. Julian Edney on "A New Theory of Greed"

Dr. Edney brings a challenging point of view to libertarians. He considers greed to be a "destructive force inherent in free market economies," in counterpoint to Rand, et al. 

He will introduce his new theory of greed and discuss his essays, available at his website, including "Greed II - Is Exploitation Wrong?" and an explanation of his invention, "The Nuts Game" which was demonstrated by Dr. Edney in ABC-TV's special with John Stossel on Greed (2/3/98). 

Dr. Edney describes his two essays as being "diametrically opposed to libertarianism," and he wondered whether I really wanted to invite him to speak to us. I assured him the Karl Hess Club is interested in open inquiry and that our audience will be intrigued by his ideas.

My objective is to provide the club with stimulating, challenging programs - at times even confronting you with ideas that seem to counter our cherished premises. I expect the evening to be a friendly, if lively, and well served by your participation in our "Agora of Good Manners." So gird yourself, ask polite questions, and you'll be rewarded with an interesting evening.

Butler Shaffer was unable to accept our invitation to speak this month due to a prior commitment. We will reschedule his appearance as soon as possible and announce the new date later.

Because of the very special nature of the program this month, our Master of Ceremonies Brad Linaweaver will return to duty for July.
