Dialogue
"The first human who hurled an insult instead of a stone was the founder of civilization." 
– Sigmund Freud

Forum 4:
Wealth, Poverty and the Middle Class

This forum brings together people from different socioeconomic groups to discuss their life experiences and personal and political worldviews. Conflicts, prejudices, anxieties, and feelings such as desire, envy, guilt, shame and rage will arise as attempts are made to communicate with people known to have vastly different financial resources. As a consequence of the opportunity to share these feelings with one another, greater empathy will emerge, and the group will be able to envision potential solutions to political problems that have socioeconomic issues as a foundation.
