R: Let the Nuclear Family Meltdown

JOINT DEBATE CAUCUS WITH THE PARTY OF THE LEFT

Wednesday, April 6th at 7:30 pm in the Calhoun Common Room

 

The Party of the Left and the Federalist Party meet to jointly debate the state of America's families. When did the nuclear family develop? Is it already on the decline? What values do they naturally instill in American culture? Is this the healthiest configuration for American children? What of the extended family? Some questions that the Left will surely be addressing: Is the nuclear family oppressive? If we allow it to decline, is this a good or bad thing for "pluralism"? All are welcome!

Join us as we take on energy issues, conservation, and environmental concerns. How should our country treat our oil reserves? Is this the best time to dip into them?
