Danny Benavidez has no exciting story to tell, only one to begin. He has spent most of his life in Brownsville, Texas, and felt like he was living in a manufacturing facility. You wake up, go to work, go home, and that’s it. The type of thinking from previous generations influenced his decisions for most of his life. After learning about how millennials can change society, he found a cause worth fighting for; no longer were the days of feeling small, as he learned one’s ideas are anything but.

He has also been a Physics student at Baylor University in Waco, Texas since 2013.

Personal Influences: Davey Havok, Ron Paul, Ben Swann, Peter Thiel, Scott Horton

Favorite Acronym: AFI. AFI, short for A Fire Inside, is a band that has been an influence on me, teaching me to look at things from more than one’s perspective.

Most important ssues: entrepreneurship, foreign policy and technology.

Favorite quote about Texas: “I think Texans have more fun than the rest of the world.” -Tommy Tune

Socratic Happy Hour: A Free Man's Worship

February 19, 2018, 7:30pm - February 19, 2018, 9:30pm

It's 2018 and we're back with our next opportunity to get together and critically examine a philosophical text. Here's what the future has in store: Join us over drinks and discussion of Bertrand Russell’s 1903 essay, “A Free Man’s Worship.” Sable will be leading us through the essay, socratic seminar style. Participants will join for an hour-long discussion where we address open-ended questions based on the text, listen to each others comments and respond thoughtfully, and walk away with a better understanding of the topic at hand as well as connecting more with those who attend. We will convene on Monday, February 19th at 7:30 PM to discuss our momentary presence in the epic cosmic drama unfolding all around us, and how to live as part of it. Brew and Brew has informed us that we’ll be sharing the room with a tarot card reader; we’ve selecting this reading with that knowledge in mind, which should make our discussion all the more interesting. Oh, and did we mention: Your first drink is on us! You can find the reading here: tinyurl.com/FreeMansWorship *This event is open to anyone interested in having conducive dialogue about the essay at hand and those that agree to come prepared to engage on the text. Please read the essay beforehand (we'll provide a PDF on the page and hard copies in person).
